Railroad Administration Takes Drastic Measures 
for Conservation of Fuel Supply During Strike 
— Only American-Owned Vessels Will Be 
Allowed to Fill Bunkers. 






WASHINGTON, Nor. 6.— Still hopeful that court develop- 

Cents at Indianapolis on Saturday might point the way to an early 
ding of the cool strike, Government agencies nevertheless put forth 
sy n e w ed end more determined efforts today to protect the public 
against the distress almost certain to result from a protracted sus- 
pension of mining operations. 

^v-IUnHsmg that the country is burning three times as much coal 
M the mines are turning out, the railroad administration, the great 
coal distribution agency, through its recently-created central com- 
mittee took drastic action in ordering that the supplying of coal to 
foreign-owned ships in American porta be stopped immediately. 

With calls for assistance from communities suffering from a 
coal shortage growing more numerous, the railroad administration 
turned loose every available car to meet the appeals made for fuel. 
Orders went to regional directors of the nation's railroads from 

t General Hines %o eliminate train service wherever necessary 
In the public interest, but it was officially announced that no general 
curtailment of service waa contemplated. 

The discontinuance of foreign tonnage bunkering was the first 
general step to be taken by the Government since the coal strike 
began last Saturday toward curtailment. 

The committee made it plain that American-owned ships and 
tonnage under the American flag would continue to receive coal sup- 
plies, but all other vessels as the situation now exists would be com- 
pelled to await the end of the strike. 

The committee's action is similar to that taken by Great Britain 

during the recent strike of British coal miners. Officials would not 

predict the result of the order, as the amount of foreign tonnage in 

American ports was not known in Washington 

' Will Tie TJp Vessels 

Vessels now being bunkered, in the 
•vent that they are foreign owned, 
trill be tied up as well aa all such 
Incoming veuela with insufficient 
supplies in their holds to make the 
return trip. Vessel* In the trans- 
Atlantic service, and now In Euro- 
pean ports, It, was considered, would 
remain en . that side of the Atlantic 
unless facilities v were available for 
taking on enough coal for the round 

It was apparent thai the central 
committer considered that precedence 
must be given to all land traffic In 
-tte matter of fae! dbuributio 
awn American ships would receive 
banker permits. 

Before leaving Washington tonight 
for Indianapolis, Assistant Attorney- 
General Ames, In charge of the Gov- 
ernment's case, declared there waa

"For Its enforcement by the Feder-

Reports and Denials 

Reports from agents of the De- 
partment of Justice and frop\ miners 
and operators* showed little over 
night ohonge In conditions, except 
that operator* claimed 44 unlbn 
mines lit operation to West Virginia, 
a gain of 82 over last Saturday. Of- 
ficers of the American Federation of 
Labor and representatives of the 
miners denied the reports, and their 
advices showed no crumbling of union 
forces anywhere. •f-'n 

There were rumors, apparently 
emanating from high sources, that 
th« injunction hearing feoffor Satur- 
day' might go over ferine week 
without prejudice to either aide. 
Equally persistent were reports that 
Samuel Gompers. President of the 
A. F. of L. would make a personal 
appeal to Attorney-General Palmer 
tomorrow for withdrawal of the re- 
straining order and all court pro- 
ceedings on asaursnee that if this waa 
dene the strike could be settled and 
the men put baek to work In the 
mines In 48 hours. Mr. Palmer was 
out of the city, but the statement by 
Judge Ames that the Government 
would not compromise the strike, 
which Is held to be Illegal, was ac- 
cepted as the last word. 

Would Permit Negotiations 

Dismissal of all court proceedings, 
atjked for today by the unions, would 

ike it possible. Labor leaders said, 
the two sides, through their full 
le committees, to negotiate a new 
agreement at' one sitting. He- 
ll, and Issuance of more drastio 

|ers directing heads of the miners' 

_ intsatlon to resume operations, 
would mean, these officials said, a 
long drawn out struggle. 

Government officials took another 
leak at stock reports, and while they 
indicated coal enough to. meet im- 
mediate needs, the fact stared them 
1*1 the face that the dally consump- 
thjn wss around ten million tens, 
while the daily output had been re- 
duced by the strike to about three 
nad "a half million tons. It waa easy 
to figure, they said, how long present 
stocks would last, assuming the bins 
ware filled fee an average run of 
SS days. 

A full report of the strike situa- 
tion will he presented to the cabinet 
at its meeting tomorrow. While it has 
been announced that the cabinet 
stood solidly together In formulating 
tie Government's strike policy, It has 
been common talk In labor and of- 
ficial circles that Secretary Wilson, 
a -former officer of the United Mine 
.Workers of America, strongly op- 
posed Injunction proceedings.

BERLIN. NoV. 6. — Count von 
Bernstorff was on the stand for. a 
protracted examination regarding the 
effectiveness of German propaganda 
In .the United States during the war 
at today's session of the committee 
of the National Assembly Investigat- 
ing the subject of responsibility for 
the war. Count Bernstorff was asked 
what he had done to offset British 
propaganda, and' he told the home 
authority that it must aend cinema- 
tograph films to counteract the* effect 
of the English efforts. 

' The American pre*ss, said Bern- 
storff, was strongly anti-German from 
the beginning of the war, and the 
newspapers -published In the German 
language had only an ineffective ap- 
peal to the Americans. A laugh was 
raised when Deputy Wormuth, the 
former Mayor of Berllni asked about 
the activities of the "English journal- 
ist;" George Creel.

Senate Rejects Ross Amend- 
ment on Vote of 39 to 35-— 
Second Reading Passed on 

Same Division Reversed 


OTTAWA, Nov. «.— That the Gov- 
ernment has decided to accept an 
amendment putting a limit on the 
amount the arbitrators will be allowed 
to fix as the value of Grand Trunk 
stock was an interesting announce- 
ment made today in the Senate by 
Sir James Lougheed, in replying to a 
question by Senator Edward Smith. 

The figure beyond which the ar- 
bitrators will not be permitted to go 
had not been decided on, but it will 
be inserted in the bill when it reaches 
committee stage. Sir James said. 

Several speeches against the mea- 
sure were made In the Upper House 
and one in favor of it. Those oppos- 
ing the bill and supporting Senator 
Ross' amendment to defer considera- 
tion until next session were Senators 
McLennan. White. Casgraln. Power, 
Belque and Roche, while support of 
the bill came from Senator Smith. 

Senator Beique, In opposing the 
purchase, said that before the con- 
struction of the Transcontinental, Sir 
Wilfrid Laurler . had brought Sir 
Charles Rivers-Wilson, head of the 
Grand Trunk, and Sir William Mac- 
kenzie together, and suggested that 
the Grand Trunk in the Bast and the 
Canadian Northern in the West 
should be amalgamated for the pur- 
pose of a transcontinental develop- 
ment. Sir Charles waa not disposed 
to make the arrangement with Mac- 
kenzie and Mann, and broke oft the 
negotiations rather abruptly, leaving 
the Canadian Northern magnates 
rather Indignant. 

Senator Belque said he had been 
present at the meeting in his capacity 
as a member of Parliament, and, 
therefore, felt free to mention, the 
matter at this time. The Grand

100 to 190 guineas; Cadillac Chassis, 
410 guineas; Locomobile travelling 
workshop, 870 guineas; motorcycles, 
69 to 60 guineas. Some of these 
lorries have been in use since the 
Salisbury Plain days. Only spare 
parts and typewriters now remain for

Port Alberni Jumped Into the honor 
class yesterday afternoon by securing 
their quota of 132,000. "This Is very 
gratifying, and Vancouver Island Is 
once more leading the way," said 
Brlg.-Gen. Clark. 

The slogan adopted by Victoria 
from now till the end of the cam- 
paign is "Every Man Behind the But- 
ton." The meaning of this phrase 
will be demonstrated In no uncertain 
mSnner by the Victory Loan salesmen 
and workers, who will make It their 
business to try and secure for every 
Victoria^ the distinction of being a 
wearer of this honor emblem. There 
are, indeed, few who cannot afford to 
become Victory Loan subscribers, for 
under the easy terms of payment ar- 
ranged. 16 down and $6 per mdnth 
will purchase a bond. Knowing this 
full well, the Victory Loan workers, 
who one and all appreciate the Im- 
portance of the loan becoming a huge 
success, are going to politely but 
firmly endeavor to make the non- 
wearer of a subscriber's button con- 
spicuous by his absence. 

On Tuesday next, November 11.- 
which is the first anniversary of 
Armistice Day, an effort Is being made 
throughout the whole province 'to 
specially feature this occasion by se- 
curing a huge day's subscriptions. 
On the Mainland every merchant has 
been requested to Invest his takings 
on that day In Victory bonds This 
matter Is now receiving consideration 
by the Victoria Victory Lean Com- 
mittee, and a similar l ee j ues t may be 
made on the patriotic sentiments snd 
pockets of the merchants of this city. 

No better day could have been se- 
lected for a greet rally than the an- 
niversary of the memorable Armistice 
Day. and It le hoped that Victorians 
will readily fall in line with* the spe- 
cial appeal that will be made en them 
to commemorate this great eanlver-

Men Take Opposite View 

• OTTAWA, Nov. 6.— Another clear-cut intimation that the Union- 
ist Government will not carry on should the House impose on it the 
harden of providing additional gratuity for returned man came from 
Hon. J. A. Calder, chairman of the special soldiers' coss n u tt ee, in 
parliament today. The minister said that members should vote as they 
saw fit. But, he added, the point was that if the members signified 
their disapproval of the Government's stand by voting down its policy, 
"then another Government would hove, to carry on." a 

The majority of the members board from today ap p ea r ed to Irrpor 
Major Andrews' amendment to the motion for the a doption of the 
report of the committee. . This would substitute the G. W. V. A. plan 
for the committee's proposals. . They did not all indicate how they 
would vote, however.. The number of Government m as sb s Ts who 
have so expressed themselves, combined with uncertainty as to what 
the attitude of the Opposition members will be, was clearly causing 
anxiety around the corridors of Parliament tonight. 

Mr. Levi Thompson, liberal-Unionist, who spoke this afternoon, 
disagreed with Mr. CaUer's view that the Government should resign 
in the event of an adverse vote. . He said if it did so it would he

Germany Is Required 
To Make Recompense 

Protocol Sent to Berlin by Allied and Associated 

Powers Must Be Executed Before Peace 

Treaty Comes Into Force — Details of 

Obligations Are Given 

WASHINGTON*. Nov. 6. — Notice 
was served on Germany by the Allied 
and Associated Powers in a note ac- 
companying the protocol forwarded 
last Saturday that the treaty of peace 
would not go Into force until Ger- 
many executes to the satisfaction of 
the Allied and Associated Powers ob- 
ligations assumed under the armistice 
convention and additional agreements. 
The note, made public tonight by the 
State Department, provides that the 
German Government shall send repre- 
sentatives to Paris November 10 to 
make final arrangements for the put- 
ting Into effect of the treaty. But the 
note specifies that before the treaty 
can be made effective through a pro- 
cess verbal of the deposit of the ratifi- 
cations, the German representatives 
shall obligate their nation to carry out 
the terms of the protocol. 

The protocol contains a number of 
obligations assumed by Germany in 
the armistice convention and comple- 
mentary agreements which have not 
been carried ont and which have been 
the subject of urgent representations. 
These include the withdrawal of Ger- 
man troops from Russian territory and 
the delivery of certain German ton- 

Moat Important, however. In the 
obligations which Germany Is asked 
to assume under the protocol. Is the 
replacing of vessels destroyed at

off Ferrol and the destruction in the 
North See of certain submarines pro-

W. F. Cockshutt. Brentford, said 
he could not agree with' the findings 
of the report. It wee too cautious 
on the side of saving the country. 
He would spend six times as much 
aa the report set forth. Mr. Cock- 
shutt believed that If the. report was 
placed again before the committee 
with instructions to amend It and 
multiple the programme of expendi- 
tures, the country would support 
that. A soldier loan, for say $$00,- 
000,000, would be subscribed within 
Canada much more rapidly than the 
present Victory Lean - was being 
taken up. 

Mr. Turgeon said that this coun- 
try was In duty bound to recognise . 
the sacrifices of the returned soldier. 
He advocated the distribution of 
1100,000.000 In addition to the $50.- 
000,000 provided for by the report, 
and expressed the view that the sol- 
diers would be satisfied with that. 
Tehee Former's View 

Levi Thompson refused to believe 
that Canada was bankrupt. He thought 
that the people today were more 
ready to pay taxes for good reason 
than they had been in a long time. 

Mr. Thompson said that aa far as 
the farmers of the West were con- 
cerned they wero ready to do their 
share for the returned men. 1/ Chore 
was to be an Increase in the customs' 
tariff, he wanted the manufacturer* 
to agree to pay an excise tax on half 
that Increase. 

Canadians, he said, hsd not gone. 
yet to the limit of their endurance, 
and the time had come to tax .their , 
endurance more. He would support 
Mr. Andrews' amendment, he said. If 
the member for Winnipeg would agree 
to add the clause, "with such modifi- 
cations as may be agreed upon," In 
accepting the G.W.V.A. plan.' The 
payment of $400,000,000 .would not 
ruin the country. 

Mr. Thompson did not think the 
Government had any right to decline 
to carry on. If It was the wish of Its 
followers thst It should do so. Ho 
suggested, in closing, thst the fight- 
ing men should be paid tho difference 
between what they received and the 
pay of common laborers In Canada. 

K. w. Nesbltt, member of the com*' 
m It tee. vigorously defended the report. 
Despite statements to the contrary, lie 
said, the committee had before It the 
proof that no other country has 
treated the fighting men no gener- 
ously. There wae no guarantee thet 
If the soldiers were given 12, $00 each 
they would not come hack later or 
The committee had recommended el 
for those who will require help st 
cost of $40,000,000, and this should be 
sufficient for the present.

LOTTDOW. Kov. S. — The House of 
Common* devoted the entire evening- 
to a> discussion of the Bunlan prob- 
lem, without, however, throwing- any 
new light on the subject. Labor mem- 
,bero strongly criticized the Govern-

thereof, and a statement that the Bol- 
ehevlkl wore ready to negotiate peace 
with the Entente Governments upon 
'•••enable terms, was made by Lieut. - 
Colonel Lestrang Malone. one of the 
Coalition Liberal members. 

Winston Churchill, Secretary for 
War, made a Ion* reply, defending the 
Government's policy, which, he con- 
tended, was not solely a British policy, 
but one carried out in full co-operation 
with the Allies, who are equally re- 

He made no reference to the state- 
ment of Colonel Malone.

R. J. Manion. Sir George Foster said 
there are sufficient raw sugar sup- 
plies on hand and to be delivered 
before the end of the year to satisfy 
tne -normal requirements of Canada 
provided thefe are no strikes which 
would interfere with their delivery 
and refining. * 

Outside of the commitments of the 
Royal Commission on sugar suppliea 
amounting to 18,000 tons, only one 
shipment of 8.000 tons, contracts for 
which had been entered into last 
Juno, would be exported this year. 
The Canadian trade commission bad 
been advised by the refiners that 
sufficient raw sugar had been pur- 
chased to provide a fun supply of 
sugar for domestic use in Canada 
during the year of 1920 -at an in- 
creased rate of consumption.

OTTAWA, Nov. «.— Repreeentatlvee 
of tho Retail Merchants' Association 
of Canada who mot the Board of 
Commerce this morning held that 
there was no profiteering among the 
retailers; that they were prepared to 
do all in their power to asset the 
board in their effort to relieve present 
conditions and that in their opinion 
•the lowering of prices arbitrarily 
would not help, but would make mat- 
ters worse. 

Mr. K. M. Trowern, seoretary of 
the Domllnon Executive of Retail 
Merchants, said the retailers no 
I longer wanted to be branded as 
! thieves and scoundrel*. It was no 
j good, he Insisted, on fooling the pub- 
lic longer about a reduction In the 
cost of living. Prices would only 
coma down In the natural order. The 
retailers had been trying to get the 
Board of Commerce to allay that 
great unrest In the public mind. He 
held that 90 per oent of the people 
did not know what they wore talk- 
ing about when they insisted that 
prices should be arbitrarily lowered. 

Tha two vital things affecting the 
cost of living were supply and de- 
mand. The Board of Commerce 
oould not pun down prioee; they 
would have to come down In the nat- 
ural order. 

He considered it the duty of the 
board and .also of the merchants to 
protect the public from camouflage 
of this kind. 

Judge Robson assured the depu- 
tation that they would be consulted 
on any points affecting their busl-j 

OTTAWA, Nov. S. — Resuming the 
debate on the report of the special 
committee on Bill No. 19. soldiers' 
oivli re-establishment. Dr. W. J. Ed- 
wards, Frontenac. devoted a part of 
his opening remarks to the member 
from North Blmooe, Colonel John A. 
Currie. who was not In the House. 

He qharged Colonel Currie with 
having made unwarranted, slanderous 
statements regarding the members of 
the House, and then run away "when 
he knew his medicine was 'coming." 

The member for Bdmonton, Mr. 
Hackle, in seconding Major Andrews' 
amendment, had said that he agreed 
with the financial finding of the re- 
port. Yet, the amendment disagreed 
with the financial section of tho re- 
port entirely and in effect urged ac- 
ceptance of the O.W.V.A. plan of re- 
establishment with a greatly Increased 

Dr. Bd wards declared that Irrespec- 
tive of the financial condition of the 
country he was not in favor of meet- 
ing the demands of the returned men 
who sought a further general gratuity. 
He would not support that if the coun- 
try was without a cent of debt. 

Dr. Edwards said Colonel Currie had 
slandered tho returned soldiers by 
getting up in the House and saying 
that they returned home drunk and 
that %,900 of them were confined at 
Burwash prison farm. 

J. H. Burnham said that when Can- 
adians were called to the colors by a 
very anxious country they- had been 
told that when they returned they 
would be taken care of. When they 
did come back they were greeted with 
the sight of a lot of wealthy people 
who had made money out of the war, 
living in luxury. He advocated ap- 
propriating the increase which had 
accrued to these people by reason 
of the war for the benefit of the sol- 

Mr. Burnham asserted in closing 
that if this raatfer were placed before 
the people in the form of a referendum 
they would say that more ehould be

"An Important convention of the

thoughtful people, of whatever shade 
of political opinion, that its delibera-

vince the newly-organised farmers' 
party that it should not oppose, but 
should join forces with the Norrls 
government. Farmers of the Norrls 
legislative forces do not appear to 
be markedly averse to furthering this 
type or proposal, though the post- 
election experience of the Liberal ele- 
ment in Ontario in not opposing 
farmers' candidates does not encour- 
age the view that 'the Liberals here 
will derive much satisfaction from a 
slmla r course. 

"So that it looks very much sa

with Labor possibly aa a fourth

Dr. McLennan said It was a forgery.

writing enabled the court to decide 
that tho signature was not genuine. 
The suit was an action to recover

Speaks in Opposition to Mooted 
Plan for Two Parliaments in 
I reland— U rges Self-Govern- 
ing Status 

LONDON. Wednesday, Nov. f. — 8lr 
Horace Plankatt, discussing with the 
Associated Proas today the report that 
the Cabinet Committee on' Ireland 
bad accepted proposal* providing (or 
the creation of two separate Irish 
parliaments, with seme, form of su- 
preme authority representative of 
both, reiterated the Ideas he had ex- 
pressed in his speech at the National 
Liberal Club, October St. when ho 
advocated an offer of the fullest 
measure of self-government to the 
Irish people. Referring to this 
speech, Sir Horace said: 

"I there laid it down as an essen- 
tial of the settlement that it should 
have a good chance of receiving, not Im- 
mediately, but ultimately, the support 
of the majority of the Irish people. 
Throughout the controversy I have in- 
sisted upon a united Ireland, with a 
real democratically constituted parlia- 
ment in supreme control of all its aff- 
airs other than foreign policy and de- 

"The report to which you call my at- 
tention sets up two parliaments, on* for 
the northern and the other for the three 
southern Provinces, while the Irish par- 
liament which will determine the na- 
tional policy of Ireland ia redueed to 
some kind of a council which can never 
have any dignity nor status until both 
the new parliaments agree to endow it 
with what Irish opinion at home and 
abroad considers essential powers. 

"Ktich a settlement would have to be 
Imposed upon* Ireland, and the one thing 
to be said in its favor— and indeed, this

TORONTO. Nov. 6.— Concerning 
the Grand Trunk purchase bill now 
before the Senate The Globe says 
editorially today; 

"The Senate should hasten to dis- 
abuse the minds of self-serving big 
Interests of the notion that it is their 
perennial choreboy. All provinces 
are deeply concerned In the measure. 
The creation and development of a 
great national system of transporta- 
tion serving all parts of the Domin- 
ion is a public project that commands 
encouragement and support from 
every section of the country. It af- 
fects directly the growth and progress 
of the whole nation. 

"The will of the people on the ques- 
tion Is abundantly clear. There Is no 
question aa to what the people want, 
and what they regard to be In the^r 
Interests and for their betterment. 
There Is no doubt as to what the Fen- 
ate should do, and do quickly and 
effectively."' , 

OTTAWA, Nov. 5.— The decision 
of the Board of Commerce, aa to 
whether ' the prices prevailing on 
March 10 for pork products, will 
apply at the present time or not, will 
be made In writing soon. After 
hearing representations from the 
packers,, who are seeking to have 
the board rescind Its order fixing 
prices at the March level. Commis- 
sioners Robson. O'Connor and 
Murdock reserved Judgment. 

In the course of the afternoon 
sitting, Mr. Murdock stated to J. 8. 
McLean, .representing the Harris 
Abattoir Company, his firm convic- 
tion that the packers, and not the 
farmers fixed the price of livestock.

of a series of questions put by Com- 
missioner -O'Connor to 8. E. Todd, 
former secretary of the Canada Food 
Board, and now secretary of the In- 
dustrial Development Association of 
Canadian Packers. 

Mr. O'Connor, assuming that the 
per capita consumption of bread 
each year was 241 1-2 pound loaves, 
suggested that by adding the small 
sum of $1.20 a year to the price paid 
by the Canadian consumer for bread, 
the cost of bran and shorts might 
be greatly reduced. He asked Mr. 
Todd whether such a reduction would 
be possible, and. If so, whether -U 
would result In cheaper meats to the 
Canadian consumer. Mr. Todd asked- 
for time to consider the question,

BERLIN, Nov. «.— Work for all 
the unemployed in Germany for the 
next eight years will be provided In 
restoring the ruined mines of North- 
ern Franco, says Vorwaerts. This 
opinion is based on the report of 
the German mining commission gent 
to France recently to ascertain the 
extent of the damage, and which 
has Just made public Its findings. 

"The task," says the newspaper. 
"is so great that It is sufficient to 
furnish work for every Idle man In 
Europe and for every one else en- 
gaged in superfluous labor. The re- 
port shows the fallacy of the theory 
that emigration of 10,000,600 to 15,- 
000,000 persons from Germany Is an 
economic necessity." 

The commission in Its report said 
that the work of reconstruction 
would have to be done from "the 
ground up." The destruction was 
pronounced "terrible." Most of Mhe 
mines have been "drowned," It was 
said, and , in rebuilding new shafts 
they would have to be protected 
against the inward pressure of water. 
The Germans declare it is not easy 
to fix responsibility for the destruc- 
tion because it was done by numer- 
ous groups of troops and the records 
.showing where each ' military unit 
was located and at what period were 
neither complete nor available. 



VANCOUVER. Nov. «.— Several 
telegrams received ' at the City Hall 
early today indicate a speeding up of 
Federal Government machinery to 
rectify the unintended mistake In- 
corporated in the Railway Act as a 
recent amendment. The mistake rob- 
bed the Public Utilities Commission 
of B. C. of all jurisdiction In matters 
pertaining to the B. C. Electric Rail- 
way and assurances had been given 
that the effect of the amendment 
Mas unintentional. 

Vancouver members, headed by H. 
H. Stevens, succeeded Wednesday 
night in getting the Federal Govern- 
ment to agree to repeal the objec- 
tionable amendment. Notice of a bill 
for this purpose will appear upon 
today's order paper In the House, and 
Hon. C. J. Doherty, Minister of Jus- 
tice, will have charge of the new bill. 
Barring accidents, it Is confidently 
expected that Jurisdiction over the 
B. C. Electric Railway will speedily 
be restored to the Provincial Public 
Utilities Commission.

Friday, Novrratisr T, l»lt 


Soma day« ago attention was drawn 
la these columns to tho action of -this 
municipality In attaching a penalty 
of 15 per cant to city taxes which are 
not paid on time. Tha authority tor 
this practice la under an Act to 
amend the Municipal Aet passed at 
the last session of the Legislature. 
Which allows for percentage additions 
as follows: "Upon the first day ef 
July in each year the collector shall 
add to tha current years taxes un- 
paid on each parcel of land or Im- 
provements upon his roll ten 'per 
centum of the amount thereof, and 
Upon the first day of October In each 
year-shall add an additional amount 
<jf five, per centum thereof, , and, the 
s^id unpaid-, taxes, together with the 
amounts; added aa aforesaid,: shall 
fgom the respective dates aforesaid be' 
deemed to be the amount of current 
year's taxes due upoq such land or 
improvements." It was further 
Stipulated that a council, by bylaw, 
could; add this percentage on one date 
only, but that it should be fifteen per 
cent of the amount of the lax im- 
posed. It is the latter practice which 
the Victoria City council is following," 

We are 'reminded -that Pcovlrtelaj 
legislation was passed in 1878 enforc- 
ing percentage addition's on unpaid 
taxes, the penalty at that tlp»e being 
aet at 25 per oent, and this penalty, 
together with the' amount of the tax 
owing, was made subject to interest 
chsrges. the power of the Province 
to Impose such a penalty was colled 
In question. The matter was taken to 
court, where* it waa decided such 
legislation was ultra vires and that 
the only penalty possible was the In- 
torest charge on taxes in arrears, and 
the right of tax sale as laid down In 
the municipal legislation Of that time. 
The iMft^e/mecepeyd this Judg- 
ment a\vd .repealed -the percentage 
addition, substituting therefor -a pro- 
vision which purported to give a dis- 
count to those who paid their taxes 
(When tHey were due;' If thV Legis- 
lature had not the power forty years 
ago to impose percentage *4MMoW 
on taxes in arrears, it la at least 
doubtful if 1} possesses it today. 
Prior to the Imposition of the pen- 
alty under discussion, "the municipali- 
ties had power to offer what waa 
called a rebate. The way this waa 

done in this city was as follows: after 

the tax rate had heed struck and the \ tno P» b "c will realize there is justice 

assessments made, a sum of approxi- 
mately eleven per cent, In excess of 
the amount actually owing on each 
parcel* of lead, was added oh to that 
due. The tots , that Is the actual tax 
plus eleven per cent of the actual tax, 
figured on the assessment notices and 
purported to be the amount owing, 
but property owners were Informed 
that the rebate — "the fictitious eleven 
per cent" — would be granted in the 
s vent of the taxes being paid on time. 
The rebate was thus a subterfuge, 
and since attention had been drawn 
to this it was decided that In future 
there should be an undisguised pen-, 
alty. which is characterized In legis- 
ts tlve language as a "percentage ad- 
dition." The Legislature waa asked 
to make provision whereby munici- 
palities would have to impose this 
penalty, and apparently the Muni- 
cipal Committee of that body never 
took the trouble 4o ascertain whether 
or not it waa intra vires of the Prov- 
ince to take this course. The penalty 
n » w etouds in the statute books, and 
municipalities are forced to avail 
themselves Of it, but since there la 
grave, doubt of the validity of the 
lagialatlon It la the duty of the Gov- 
ernment to dear up the matter with- 
out any further delay. A ruling 
should be secured to determine i* the 
so-called rebats of (he past waa le- 
gitimate*; aibd if net. what claims 
property owaera have against muni* 
cipallties for Reimbursement of 
money* paid, over and above the ac- 
tual taxes owed, with interest charges, 
In the esses of delinquency. Any rul- 
ing regarding the power of the Prov- 
ince to Impose percentage additions 
such as these nowjh force would, If 
It waa foupd there* was no validity In 
such a coarse, be retroactive. -There 
la strong popular opinion against the 
present penalty, and It the court de- 
cision of 1878 is any criterion of the 
Province's rights in this matter it 
would be well for delinquent prop- 
erty owners, when they do pay' their 
taxes, to pay the added penalty under 
protest pending such time as the 
courts decide whether or not a per- 
centage addition Is permissible. 

active to April 1 of the- current year. 
Not only did the eoeernment make 
this statement, but 'the promise was 
repeated eubesquently^evjfr. P. E. 
Blondln, the Po»tn»aster»tSeneral. and 
by Mr. ». WV Hawaii Cttetpnan of 
the Privy Council.'.. Moreover; a 
nptjee to this effect. /soni the Deputy 
Postmaster-General Va* placed on 
the Pest Office Order Book. Through 
delays, which appear \ to have been 
unavoidable, the Civil Service Bill, 
which deals With reclassification- and 
salary increases, waa shelved until tan 
present session. According to its 
terms, the reclassification and salary 
revision are to come into effect on 
April 1, 1*20. i t i, j n going back on 
its promise to make the revised 
salary schedule, as far aa the postal 
workers are concerned, retroactive to 
April 1, 1»1», that It is claimed the 
Government has broken faith with its 

This is not the only complaint tho 
pcata! workers have. The bonus 
which was given to meet tho great 
increase in the cost of living haa been 
reduced for Western employees. For 
tad fiscal year ending March, l»ll, 
these workers received a Western 
provisional allowance (In effect far 
about tO years paat) of $180, and a 
war bonus of $300, msklng a total in 
this way of $480. For the fiscal year 
ending March 81, 1920, there is set 
aside a war bonus of $420, but the 
Western provisional allowance haa 
been discontinued. Thus ldst year 
the total allowance of $480 was paid 
to all employees receiving less than 
$1,300 a pear, and the amount was 
graduated in connection with those 
receiving higher salaries. For the 
present fiscal year the v maximum 
bonne is for heads of households re- 
ceiving less than $1,200 a year, and; 
the maximum bonus for single men 
la reduced to $262. In addition there 
is a rlntue In the bonus regulations' 
for the current year whereby an em- 
ployee who hoe received no Increase 
in salary since April 1, 1918. is en- 
titled to the total allowances he re- 
ceived last year, namely, $480. 

It should bd pointed out on behalf 
of the employees that whereas In 
pre-war" years they received the 
Weatetn provisional allowance of 
mo, it haa new been abolished. 
There la substituted in its .place a 
war bonus of $420, which means the 
actual increase 1 In salary — if a bonus 
can be considered such — is $240 over 
what was received in 1914. This rep- 
resents on an average an Increase of 
about 36 to 30 per cent on the pay in 
pre-war years' and.' it Is designed to 
.meet a jump in the cpst of living that, 
all round, la certainly from 80 to 70 
per cent and in the case of many 
commodities Is 10* percent. On this 
reckoning it is quite apparent the 
postal empjoyeos < have legitimate 
grievances and are set an Impossible 
task, for the 'money they draw- Is be- 
low what the Government * Labor 
Gazette claims la necessary to pur- 
chase the necessaries ot life. The 
result is there is grave discontent. In 
view Of the explanation we have given 

on the aide of the postal employees. 
It la Clearly' the duty of the Govern* 
ment to meet this situation and to do 
so promptly. In the first .place It 
should redeem Its promises ahd make 
the new salary schedule retroaotlve to 
April 1; 131*9. If that new schedule- 
la ample to meet the needs of the 
situation, there will be" no protest 
against .the abolition of the Western 
provisional allowance; If It fa narj 
the question of restoring the allow- 
ance, wholly or In part, should be 
conaidered. The Civil Service Bill 
has passed the committee stage In tho 
Senate and stands for third reading, 
and the new scale of pay Is not to be 
effective until April 1 next. As we 
have ahown, this la clearly In viola- 
tion of the promises of the Govern- 
ment. The postal employees are not 
being treated fairly. They have been 
temperate In their requests for con- 
sideration. The complaints thay have 
made have been outstanding for a 
long time, and there la not a shadow 
of doubt that, In Western Canada at 
least, they have public opinion on 
their side. 




From time >to time we have con- 
aidered It desirable to draw attention 
to tha clalma of postal employees to 
better financial treatment at the 
hands of the Government. It seems 
he c e asa ry to do so sgaln. for in the

he suggests, If the whole menu Is In- 
eluded in the cabled dispatch. Is, 
however, hard substantial enough 
to satisfy the diving* of mankind. It 
haa this merit, inasmuch aa If It were 
adopted universally the meet trust 
Would disappear off the face of the 
earth, the Shortage of sugar would no 
longer be a problem, and the price 
of flour woflld cease to worry. Our 
farmer*, instead of demanding a 
minimum price for wheat, would be 
confining their efforts to growing 
such products aa dandelion*, lettuce 
find grape*, sod bread lag chickens 
end cows, not for destructive pur- 
pose*, but tetely en that eggs and 
milk might be available. 
, .There would be one great ad- 
vantage In whet Dr. Oldfleld suggests, 
end that is. profiteering In foodstuffs 
would almost disappear, for, aa.far as 
we can sea. it should be possible for 
everyone to produce what he and ahe 





wants aader the new dietary system. 
The Weetd of "three acres end a cow" 
for everyone might well come into 
being under the Oldfleld regime. 
Then, again, the problem. "Is life 
worth Hvlny T" would be answered In 
terms of Punch's famous comment* 
ary, that "It depends on the liver." 
Presumably, with the Oldfleld diet, 
there would be no liver complaints, 
and the unreal caused thereby, which 
Is the price of high living, would dis- 
appear. There are many, of course, 
who would still maintain that old age 
la unessential in the scheme of 
things, and these will still preserve 
their desire for roast beef snd other 
so-called necessaries of life. ' To deal 
With such people legislation eould be 
passed prescribing what should be 
eaten. If It la desirable in the In- 
terests of the many that there should 
be greater longevity among mankind, 
and if the majority are to continue to 
rule, then Dr. Oldfleld'* panacea for 
eld age would be enforced by the law. 
What he suggests opens up an Illimit- 
able vista of possibilities. Not the 
least of these la that if there waa 
wholesale adoption of hia dietary sys- 
tem mankind could dispense with 
moat of thoae .people who are neces- 
sary for Its sustenance today, and 
supposed to be part and parcel of the 
economic well being of the world. 




Time to Call a Holt 

We want an end made to these 
threat* and attempts to put the whole 
world 'machinery ef the country out 
of gear by "attacking the life of the 
community." Any and every section 
must be convinced that they gain 
nothing by taking up the strike 
weapon against the State. The people 
of thie country do not Intend to be 
governed by methods of that kind. —

Trade With Germany 

It Is certainly time that business men 
should begin to wake up to the possi- 
bilities of profitable trade with Cen- 
tral Europe, before our friends the 
Americans, the French and the Dutch 
have planted themselves there to our 
exclusion. ' The war with Germany is 
now over. It would be folly to pur- 
sue a spirit of suicidal warfare now 
that peace haa been made. In the 
Interests of all Europe and ourselves 
In particular it la necessary that we 
should trade with Germany. The 
Government, we are glad to Bee, is 
waking up to the importance of this 
fact— London Daily Chronicle, 


Thro Lnuvuln Library 

It has fallen to the lot of the gov- 
ernors of the Rylands Library at 
Manchester to set a fine example. 
Within aix month* of the destruction 
of the Louvaln Library by the Huns 
in 1914 they sent off a gift of books, 
"the first which had been effectually 
given to the future library." Num- 
bers of British institution* have fol- 
lowed this lead, and all told about 
26,000 volumes have been received or 
promised by this time. To replace 
those destroyed, numbering a quarter 
of a million. Is no light matter. Still. 
it la a substantial beginning, and. of 
course, the Peacs Commissioners In- 
tend to exsct reparation from Ger- 
many. — London Dally Express. 

Reforming the Movies 
The producers of moving pictures 
have run amuck among our feelings. 
They have harrowed them forward 
and back and crosswise, and kept us 
stirred up with the story of the vil- 
lain, the Innocent maiden trapped, 
the hero rescuer, or the other story 
of the social sin and Its penalty, until 
we have begun to wonder If the pre- 
dictions of the educational value of 
the, cinema were never to be realised 
In its general use for the amusement 
of the public. If how there is to be 
a change and something more whole- 
some, more edifying, and what ought 
to be more interesting to the average 
person of intelligence is to be given 
us, even experimentally, It -should be 
welcomed. — St. Louis Globe Demo-

Bravo, Clemcnooau! 
M. Clemenceau's great speech in 
the French Chamber will cause a 
thrill in other countries than France, 
and in none will it be received with 
deeper appreciation and gratitude 
than in the British Empire. We ell 
know now what France haa suffered 
—tha flower of her youth perished, 
her great Industrial centres destroyed, 
her trade stagnant, her credit serlous- 
ly Impaired. But Prance haa a heroic 
soul, an indomitable spirit, and no 
Frenchman, we think, is better fitted 
to give expression to the unconquer- 
able genlua of the race than the pres- 
ent Premier. It was M. Clemencenu. 
by his burning faith, his singleness of 
purpose, his superb patriotism, who 
saved France and thereby saved Eu- 
rope. That was a task sufficient for 
any man and gr«%t enough' to justify 
rest after the end of the long day. 
But M. Clemencenu cannot grow old, 
and with the aame eloquence which 
cheered the Potlu In' the darkest 
hours he la now calling upon his 
oountrymen to show In the peace the 
same qualities which brought them 
to Victory In the war. Such an ap- 
peal, coming from such a man, will 
awaken the chivalrous Instincts of 
all who love France. — London Morn- 
ing Post. 



WINNIPEG, Nov. «. — Mayor 
Char lee F. Gray stated today that 
the proposal of the Labor Party to 
see that taxes on houses valued under 
$3,000 are abolished, aa outlined by 
8. J. Farmer, Labor candidate for 
Mayor, could .not possibly be carried 

"Property in Winnipeg Is pledged 
for the common debt," he asserted. 
"No legislature would sanction the 
relieving of our obligations, snd the 
statement Is grossly misleading. Even 
If the council agreed to do this it Is 
impossible to Imagine a legislature 
composed almost entirely of agricul- 
tural men complying with such a 
request. The people do not reel is* 
whet they are up agalnat in this 
eterHon. I hope they will take note of 
this and try to understand what some

Winter Weather In East 
MONTREAL., Nov. S. — Quebec and 
Eastern Canada felt their first touch 
of real Winter yesterday, when they 
were visited by a heavy snow and 
sleet storm. The telegraph system 
between here and the Maritime Prov- 
inces was badly crippled. The trunk 
telephone lines connecting - Montreal 
.with Sherbrooke and Eastern town- 
ships snapped during the day. 

Mrs George Smith, the educational, 
secretary of the National Chapter, Ira* 
pcrlul Order Daughters of the Empire 
will be in the city today and will ad- 
dress a meeting In the Empress 
Hotel at 3: 1G p.m. 

"Mrs. Smith Is travelling through 
the Western Provinces speaking at Im- 
portant points on the war memorial 
now being launched by the l.o.D.B., 
which embodies a scheme of scholar- 
ships, placed within the reach of the 
children of deceased or permanently 
disabled soldiers or sailors, travelling 
lectureships, placing In schools re- 
productions of the series of Canadian 
War Memorial Pictures, course* of Il- 
lustrated - lectures and supplying the 
schools with L O. D. E. historical 

Naturally a scheme as broad as out- 
lined here needs careful guidance and 
an understanding mind. It Is esti- 
mated that half a million dollar" will 
be needed'to carry out this ambitious 
project and members of all chapters 
are asked to put aside other engage- 
ments and hear the ^ Important mes- 
sage Mrs. Smith brings. The ques- 
tion of the foreign element In our 
midst and the education of the chil- 
dren of foreigners has been occupy- 
ing the minds of many of the active 
workers and the scheme is outlined 
to do a big work in eradicating racial 
differences and welding the youth of 
this wldespreading Dominion Into 
good Canadian citizenship. 

The meeting today is an open one 
to all, and a hearty invitation is ex- 
tended to men and women interested; 
in educational issues, to come and 
hoar the forceful and important mes- 
sage borne by Mrs. Smith.

Tag Day to Be Held Tomorrow 
Is to Help Funds Needed in 
Connection With Expense of 
Children's Ward 

For the first time In its history 
St.- Joseph's Hospital is coming be- 
fore the public with a "Tag Day." 
Their appeal Is to be made on Satur- 
day, the object of the collection being 
to meet the additional expense to 
which the Institution was put in con- 
nection with the recent opening of a 
children's ward. As this annex of 
the hospital is to be of great public 
benefit In the ultimate consideration 
of things It is felt that the people of 
Victoria will come forward readily 
with donations to help. The expense 
entailed by St. Joseph's in making the 
alterations necessary was not light, 
the dlet-kltchen alone costing be- 
tween $3,000 and $4,000, and this Is 
the chief item under consideration at 
the present moment. 

The tag which is to be given 
on Saturday is particularly beautiful 
as well as original, having been made 
by Sister Mary Osltter for this par- 
ticular occasion; the sentiment of the 
appeal Is worked into the design, and 
those Who are collecting tags will find 
that it makes an interesting addition to 
the many that have already been cir- 
culated here in connection with the 
various patriotic undertakings of the 
past five years. 

In making the appeal for tomorrow 
the hospital Is by no means unmlqd- 
ful of the generosity of those who 
gave donations of silver on the day 
that the children's ward was opened. 

The following are the Tag-Stations 
for tomorrow, together with the 
names of those In charge of each:

consent to meet the cost of mainten- 
ance and upkeep here. 

As the Province has no use for 
warships, obsolete or otherwise, the

quate training facilities for lads seek-

Gypsy Smith in the Drill Hall last 

, "Men are not saved en masse," he 
said. "They are saved individually. 
Every Individual must deal with God 
about the things that stand between 
them and God. There are three cases 
of conversion in the l«th chapter of 
Acts, and all are dealt with on their 
own merits. Paul did not tell Lydkt 
to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. 
She did that already. She was a 
church-goer. She worshipped God 
and believed, but she was not con- 
verted. The girl between her and 
the gaoler was the fortune-teller. He 
didn't tell her to believe, but told the 
devil in her to come out. But to the 
gaoler he said, 'Believe on the Lord 
Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be 
saved.' . because he was an agnostic. 

"If Paul was here tonight, and you 
asged him what you should do to be 
saved, he would want to know more 
about you before he answered. He 
would want to know what is standing 
in your way. 

"My experience with men Ik that 
they have one oveipowering and en- 
slaving passion that keeps them from 
believing in Jesus. There may- be a 
dosen things' in your life that want 
correcting, but there is always one 
great thing that must be removed. 

"There is a faith that damns, a 
lazy faith that accepts everything; 
too lazy to think. The kind of faltn 
thut eaves, makes you believe in God 
and H|s, transforming power; a kind 
of faith that makes you believe in 
sin; a ki nd of faith that puts its hand 
in' your heart and tears out the ac- 
cursed thing in your life. It makes 
the thief stop thieving, the unclean 
man stop his uncleanness, the double 
man stop his double-dealing. 

'The devil believes, but he Is not a 
saint. He believes more than you do. 
He believes and trembles, and that is 
something some of you, have never 

"The gaoler who was saved, the 
same hour of the night washed the 
prisoners' stripes. Don't you call 
yourself a Christian until you have 
washed the stripes. There Is a woman 
not far from here whom you ruined. 
Don't you call yourself a Christian 
until you have washed the stripes. 
Some of you have Jthings in your 
pockets that do not belong to you, 
and yet you call yourselves Christians. 

"The Cross is exacting. I never 
preached an easy religion. I don't 
believe in one. It was hard for the 
gaoler to. wash those stripes, but 
when he dirt it he was joyful. 

"When JesuB calls and says come, 
he gives you something to do. Obedi- 
ence is the only way. We forget the 
stripe washing. We don't put away 
the thing God hates — you are teth- 
ered to something which God cannot 
smile Upton, and 'you may believe un- 
til doomsday, but you won't be any 
better until you put away the act 
cursed thing." 

This evening Gypsy Smith will de- 
liver his famous lecture, "My Three

Man Charged With Forging Presrrlp* 
tlons for Liquor Is an <>1<I-Timc 
Offender 1 — Case Remanded . 


your Neighbor's VICTORY BONDS— Bey 
for Ycxndf. 

David Craigle, charged in the 
Police Court yesterday morning with 
forging a physician's prescription un- 
der the Prohibition Act, admitted he 
Was guilty of being in possession of 
the' prescriptions, but that he was not 
the person who forged them. He 
'stated the irrdtviduah who had used 
the rubber stamp 1 to put the. Provin- 
cial Coat of Arms on the forged 
blanks and the bogus serial numbers 
had left town. He stated he had no 
witnesses' to call In' his own behalf. 
The case was remanded until tomor- 
row morning. 

Craigle was arrested on Wednes- 
day evening by Detectives Slciliano 
and Phipps in his room at the Comus 
Hotel and was found in possession of 
a number of blank prescription forms 
and a number which had been filled 
in, the names of local doctors being 
forged thereto. The one one which 
the charge Is laid purported to be 
signed by Dr. Bechtel. The spelling 
of the words written in the blank 
and the doctor's name was incorrect 
and had evidently been written by an 
illiterate person. 

Craigle Is an old-time offender, 
having been given a prison -term 
about twenty years ago for the theft 
of blankets from the schooner Casco 
here. Prior to that he had done five 
years in prison for various offences. 


It was learned here yesterday that I.l'-ut.- 
Commander Wlnfcate. K.N.H.. who was slat-

temporary superintendent of the Canadian 
Mercantile Marine at Vancouver. , He la to 
take out tire next steamer completed on the 
Mainland for the Government. Lieut. -Com - 
mander Wlnsate Is well known here. He 
was on the Rainbow at Esquimau, and com- 
manded the Grilse when that little naval 
patrol ship was stven up for lost oft the 
Atlantic coast during' thft war and which 
turned up lomc days later much battered. 
■ but still afloat.

One of the still Insufficiently-sup- 
plied professions, according to the 
evidence of the advertisement columns 
of the daily press, is that of dental 
mechanics. So it was a wise move on 
the part of the Soldiers' Civil Re- 
establish ment authorities to establish 
classes In the subject for returned 
soldiers who come within their juris- 

The claBs In Victoria is on the 
fourth floor of the Central Building, 
so that for the successful applicant 
It Is but a step from the offices of 
the vocational officer to the class- 
room In which he is to spend the 
following eight months as student. 
The course was only commenced 
about eight weeks ago, but ten stu- 
dents have already been enrolled, 
and In their respective stages of pro- 
gress are doing good work under the 
instruction of Mr. J. T. C. Maple. One 
of the particular advantages of hav- 
ing this class where it is is that ad- 
joining the .rooms occupied by the 
students during thstr working hours 
is the B.C. R. .dental clinic In charge 
of Dr. H. Clarke. This nffonrs num- 
erous opportunities of practical de- 
monstration in taking Impressions for 
crown and bridge-work. etc.. so that 
the graduating mechanic does not 
pass out at the end of his course 
equipped merely with knowledge* of 
theoretical cases. *p* 

The course Is divided roughly Into 
eight periods, representing the dif- 
ferent months. The evolution from 
one 'stage to the next is more gradual 
than is Immediately apparent In read- 
ing the syllabus. The first month, 
for instance, the student Is taught the 
names of instruments and materials, 
the making of wax and mixing of 
plasters, mounting of models and 
making of base plates; the second 
month he receives instruction In re- 
pair work, flasking, packing, etc.; the 
third, vulcanising, setting up teeth, 
making of metal plates; fourth, mak- 
ing gold crowns, crown and bridge 
work; fifth, making of simple bridges, 
also of Richmond crowns (which are 
of gold with porcelain face); sixth, 
anterior bridge, casting Inlays; and 
seventh and eighth, final instruction 
In plate work and crown and bridge- 

All the appliances in the classrooms 
are thoroughly up-to-date, and the 
men work under the most favorable 
conditions as to light and ventilation. 
It Is interesting to note that In the 
class there are some students who 
have had a leg or foot amputated. 
Such a disability would disqualify 
them from re-entering their pre-war 
vocation, and having passed the 8. C. 
It. Board satisfactorily they are given 
the usual month to test out their suit- 
ability or otherwise for the new vo- 
cation. , 

"Cleanliness, neatness, quickness, 
patience and perseverance, and ad- 
aptability,", said Instructor Maple, 
"are all Important to the success of 
a student of dental mechanics. With 
all these things there Is. no reason, 
apparently, why they should not earn 
from $30 a week up once they com- 
plete their course, a* the demand 
seems to exceed the supply in this 
particular craft."

City Is Prepared to Ratify the 
Agreement With Provincial 
Government for $180,000 

City Solicitor H. S. Pringle com- 
menced yesterday to go ahead with 
the necessary legal procedure in con- 
nection with the city's adoption of the 
Soldiers' Housing Scheme and the ac- 
ceptance from the Provincial Govern- 
ment of Victoria's $180,000 allotment. 

Just what plan the city will adopt 
relative to security in its transactions 
with the returned soldier applicants 
has not yet been determined. The 
decision Will probably be left to the 
special housing committee consisting 
of Aldermen Sangster, Patrick and 

Favors Agreement of Purchase 

According to Mr. Pringle, there are 
two alternative plans which may be 
adopted. One provides that the city 
take the property selected and enter 
Into an agreement of purchase with 
the applicant. The other is that the 
city gives the title to the applicant and 
takes b;«ck a mortgage from the appli- 
cant as security. The second scheme 
is a little more involved than the for- 
mer, and Mr. Pringle Is inclined to 
favor the first. He also feels that 
the first plan would l>e more popular 
with the returned . soldiers, as the 
mere mention of the word "mort- 
gage" appears to be distasteful, al- 
though, as a matter of fact, there is 
not a great deal of difference in the 
actual working-out of the two propo- 

The city has alreudy received a 
draft agreement from the Provin- 
cial Government respecting the $180,- 
000 allotment. As soon as this is filled 
in and ratified by the Council, the 
money will change hands. The city 
has not vet received from the Gov- 
ernment the supply of questionnaires 
which are to be issued to all appli- 
cants under the scheme. Registra- 
tion for loans continued to pour Into 
the City Hull yesterday. It is evident 
that quite a number of the registrants 
have their own theories about hous- 
ing and they have endeavored to im- 
press them upon the officials. The 
details of financing and construction 
are already worked out according to 
definite form, however, and there will 
be no departure from the course al- 
ready laid down. 

Surprised By Procedure. 

Returned soldiers who attended the 
various conferences with, the alder- 
manic housing committee were sur- 
prised Monday night by the form 
which the committee's recommenda- 
tion took. They said they 'had been 
told by members of the committee 
that since the Council had previously 
rejected the housing scheme, all the 
committee was empowdered to do was 
recommend that the plan be reconsid- 
ered. As subsequent events showed, 
however, the committee made the 
clear-cut recommendation that the 
scheme be adopted, and adopted it 
was without a dissenting voice and 
without the least discussion. 

Inquiry at the City Hall yesterday 
failed to establish Just what the legal 
status of the case Is. Although the 
Council may be guilty of having com- 
mitted a technical breach of recog- 
nized procedure, there appears to be 
no doubt that it morally pledged Itself 
to adopt the scheme. The legal diffi- 
culty. If there is any, will be cleared 
up when the agreement Is finally rati- 
fied, probably early next week.

We had breakfast together the next 
mornlag but llul* to my to each 
•ther. Tho bone was not discussed 
•l all. Which mado mo fear that 
Crittsnden would do a. be had threat- 
ened, vend Pegasus back to Kentucky. 
With a distressed feeling us my heart 
I know there was nothing I could do 
Vo prevent it if bo inslstsd upon it. 

I was anxious and worried- aftor 
Orittonden loft tor the office In the 
ear. I tried to Interest myself in my 
household duties, but this did not oc- 
cupy mo /or long. 1 tolophonod an 
order to the grocer, another to the 
butcher, and thou commenced a letter 
to Mother Hayee. But that was Im- 
possible, tor, uatll tbo matter tu set- 
tled about Pegasus, 1 could not write 
to her. I should have to say some- 
thing about tho horse coming. Also, I 
reflected, I wanted to write Daddy 
Hayes and thank him tor hie rtch 
gut, but that was out of\he ques- 
tion It I was not to be allowed to 
keep It. 

Closing my desk, I went to the 
garage.- Pegasus nickered as I opened 
the door, and thrust his graceful head 
forward tor tho lump ot sugar I had 
.brought. And, munching the lump, 
the fine fellow seemed to be trying to 
understand what I wag saying to htm. 
My love for this beautiful horse, In 
the short time I hail loved him. 
amounted almost to idolatry, the 
idolatry a little girl wUl bestow upon 
her favorite doll. 

I hoard a motor. John had re- 
turned. I was still in tho garage 

"John," I called; "come here." 

"Yassum," said John, entering. 

"Did Mr. Hayes give you any or- 

"Yassum," said John. My heart 

"Anything special, John?" I in- 

John never will know the relief his 
words brought as he said : "No'm, he t 
•aid fob me to bring the cyan baclf" 
an' clean it up good. Tha's all." 

Just why Crittenden had not told 
him to take Pegasus to the depot for 
shipment as he had planned I could 
not guess. That he had relented I 
did not hope for an Instant. 1 knew 
Crittenden. I thought of it many 
times that day, but the answer would 
not come. At least not of Itself.

Crittenden's arrival. It was the first 
thing to develop after he entered the 

"Bess," he said, In the manner of 
one giving an order, "write my father 
and tell him I am shipping that 
horse to him. Get It off at once so 
he will be expecting him. John will

not reply. I was searching for the 
faintest Idea of a chance. There 
seemed to be none, 

Crittenden had started upstairs. 
"Better make It a telegram— a night 
letter instead," he called. A wire 
will be more satisfactory." 

And then my brave idea came. I 
grasped it eagerly. After all, per- 
haps, I should find myself not abso- 
lutely helpless. 

"Just a minute, Crittenden," I said, 
a little surprised that my voice did 
not betray the excitement I felt. "It 
to easy enough to say for ms to write 
a night letter, but not so easy for me 
to write it. / What would you have me 
say, Crittenden? How should the 
thing be worded so as not to offend 
your father. How could it?" 
He looked at me sharply. 
"You don't want to do it, that's 
ull," be Mid, his voice flinty. He 
came back down the steps. 

"You are quite right. I don't want 
to do it," I admitted: "but that does 
not enter into the question. I asked 
you what to say." 

"Say! Bay you're sorry and thank 
him, but you cannot keep the horse." 
"I shall have to tell him why, 
wont I?" 

Crittenden's face suddenly red- 
dened. He knew what I was aiming 
at. Then he whitened and I knew the 
change was due to anger that had 
followed his embarrassment. 

I now felt very . brave. One does 
when winning. "Do you want me to 
tell Daddy Hayes that I cannot keep 
the horse because you won't allow 
It?" I asked. v 

"Do as I tell you," he command- 
ed.. He was furious. Yet I did not 
shrink from him as I made reply. 

"I shall not write the night letter 
until you tell me what to write," I 
announced, rebelliously. "if you can 
word the message so it will not hurt

anger and still tell the truth, then I 
shall do It. But I shall disclaim all

A wedding beautiful in its sim- 
plicity and religious solemnity was 
that celebrated at three o'clock yes- 
terday afternoon at Christ Church 
Cathedral when Winsome Haxel. only 
daughter of Captain and Mrs. C. t>. 
Neroutsos. of 4« Dallas Avenue, was 
married to Mr. Hubert Weyman 
Bienkinsop, third son of the late H. 
W. Bienkinsop, Esq.. and Mrs. Bien- 
kinsop. of Warwick, England. Rt, 
Rsv. Dr. Schofleld, Bishop of Colum- 
bia, was officiant, and many of the 
friends of the principals were pres- 
ent in the church to witness the 

Captain Neroutsos gave away his 
daughter, who made a charming fig- 
ure in her robes of Ivory Thibetan 
silk into which was woven. In pale 
gold thread, a finely-worked conven- 
tional design. The lines of the dress 
were purely classical, the formal 
folds of the material falling- from 
narrow straps of gold at the should- 
ers, being lightly held to the figure 
by a Grecian girdle of braided gold 
cord, tasseled at the ends. The long, 
straight sleeves of Georgette crepe 
were finished at the wrists with deep 
points. The bridal dress was com- 
pleted with a veil of old Limerick 
lace, an heirloom worn by many 
former brides of the family. This 
was clasped to the hair with a circlet 
of orange-blossom which passed be- 
neath the lace Just over the brows. 
A big bouquet of cream roses was 

There were no attendants save the 
best man. Mr. J. L. Caesar, who has 
Just returned after five years* service 
overseas. Capt. Jarvis, also recent- 
ly returned, acted as usher. 
* The only* music during the service 
was that furnished by the organist. 
Dr. Watson, who played the Bridal 
Chorus at the beginning and the Men- 
delssohn Wedding Msrch at the con- 
clusion of the ceremony. The flower 
decorations were as conspicuously 
simple as the' other features, the altar 
vases alone being fiUed with white 

Mrs. Neroutsos. the bride's mother, 
wore a - handsome dress of taupe- 
colbred Georgette with' a broad panel 
of satin of the same color forming 
an overdress at the back. A very 
rich effect wag gained from the heavy 
embroidery in peacock-blue beads. 
The costume was completed by a 
handsome black velvet picture hat 
trimmed with ostrich. 

Ai. the church door the bride and 
bridegroom were received with a 
rain of confetti when they left the 
edifice at the conclusion of the cere- 
mony. At half-past four they sailed 
by the Seattle boat en route for Cali- 
fornia, where the honeymoon is to be 
spent. Ultimately they will make 
their home at Big Creek, Chilcotln. . 
where the bridegroom has a ranch, 
but it is expected that they will visit 
here for a time on their way through. 
The bride's going away dress, which 
was made in Russian style, was a 
lovely creation of porcelain blue 
Georgette embroidered with peace- 
dove grey, with It was worn a wrap 
of blue naval cloth, lined with blue, 
and a handsome sable collar, the gift 
of the best man. Her chic UtMe 
travelling hat was of black beaver, 
with Sage blue flowers and a silver- 
threaded vel] for trimming. 

Many friends gathered at the wharf 
to see them off, afterwards repairing 
to the home of the bride's parents 
for tea. Among the many lovely gifts 
received by the bride was a silver 
subar basin sod cream Jug from 
the Willows Camp Chapter. I.O.D.E.. 
of which she was a member.

We bad breakfast together tbe next 
morning but little to nay to each 
other. The horse was not discussed 
at all. Which made ma fear that 
Crittenden would do a* ha had threat- 
ened, aend Pegasus back to Kentucky. 
With a distressed feeling la my heart 
I knew there was nothing I could do 
to prevent It U ha Inalsted upon It. 

I was anxious and worried- after 
Crittenden left for the offlce in the 
oar. I tried to Interest myself in my 
household duties, but this did not oc- 
cupy mo for lon^r. I talsphoned an 
order to the grocer, another to the 
butcher, and than commenced a letter 
to Mother Hayes. But that was im- 
possible, for, until the matter was set- 
tled about Pegasus. I could not write 
to her. I should have to say some- 
thing about the home coming. Also, I 
reflected, I wanted to write Daddy 
Hayes and thank him for his rich 
sift, but that was out of the ques- 
tion if I was not to be allowed to 
keep it. 

Closing my desk, I want to the 
garage.- Pegasus nickered as 1 opened 
the door, and thrust his graceful head 
torwmrd for the lump of sugar I had 
-brought. And, munching the lump, 
the fine fellow seemed to be trying to 
understand what I was saying to him. 
My love tor this beautiful horse, la 
the short time I had loved him. 
amounted almost to idolatry, the 
idolatry a little -girl will bestow Upon 
her favorite doll. 

I heard a motor.. John had re- 
turned. I was still in the garage. 

"John," I called; "come here." 

"Yassum," said John, entering. 

"Did Mr. Hayes glvs you any or- 

"Yaaeum," said John. My heart 

"Anything special, John?" I in- 

John never will know the relief his 
words brought as he said: "No'm, he 
•aid fob me to bring the cyah back 
an' clean it up good. Tha's all." 

Just why Crittenden had not told 
him to take Pegasus to the depot for 
shipment as he had planned I could 
not guess. That he had relented I 
did not hope for an Instant. I knew 
Crittenden. I thought of it many 
times that day, but the answer would 
not come. At least not of itself. 

But I had the solution soon after 
Crittenden's arrival. It was the first 
thing to develop after he entered the

CHICAGO, Nov. C. — Removal of 
restrictions on soft coal and lignite

coal cars to mines still operating in

navy and other departments of the 
Federal Government. Including manu- 
facturers or producers of supplies for 
the Federal Government when of- 
ficially approved; atate. county and 
municipal departments aad institu- 
tions; public utilities, including con- 
cerns engaged in furnishing trans- 
portation, light, heat and water for

Recommends That City Council 
Draft By-Law for Single 
Bridge, Eliminating CP.R, 
From Consideration 



City Engineer F. M. Preston sub- 
mitted a report to the City Council 
yesterday, recommending that a by- 
law authorising the construction- of 
the Johnson Street bridge on the 
basis of a city-owned structure for 
vehicular, pedestrian and street car 
traffic, costing in the neighborhood of 

Such a plan would eliminate the 
Canadian Pacific Railway from con- 
sideration, and would leave .that 
company free to proceed with ^the 
building of a separate bridge on its 
oWn Initiative. 

"Building of a aingle bridge by 
the city to accommodate, only ve- 
hicles and pedestrians, and street 
cars when found desirable, is, 
In my opinion, far preferable to 
the Joint' bridge scheme," Mr. 
Preston told The Colonist last night. 
"In the first place, it would cost 
$290,000 less than the joint bridge 
und would be much better for pur- 
poses of navigation^ It would, for 
.one t'hlnpr. make the bridge 20 feet 
narrower and therefore much more 
convenient and economical to

"The coat of ' steel Is steadily 
mounting," said . Mr. Preston. "I 
have made my estimate of costs on 
the present prices, whloh have been 
affected considerably by the Pitts- 
burg strike, but which are likely to 
remain high for an Indefinite period. 
We could not get delivery of ateol 
right now at any price, but we shall 
not need any for nearly a year, even 
if we *tart to go ahead with the 
bridge In the near future. If we start- 
ed construction in May It would take 
us nine months to get the concrete 
foundations laid, and we probably 
^would be unable to put any of the 
wteel in place until early in 1021. 
Might Kmploy ISO Men 

Laying of the foundations for the 
Johnson Street bridge, no matter 
what plan is adopted, will only em- 
ploy from 100 to 150 men, Mr. Pres- 
ton said. He added that he did not 
believe the Dominion Government, 
which has control of waterways, 
would permit the C. P. R. to transfer 
the Red River swing bridge, hero, aa 
was once proposed In the event of 
the failure of the city to agree with 
the company. Mr. Preston believes 
that the Government would insist 
that the company build a bascule 
type bridge, costing in the neighbor- 
hood of $600,000. The cost of the 
Joint railway and vehicular bridge, 
which waa to have been jointly 
financed by the city, the Provincial 
Government and the C. P. R., would 
coat 1710,000, according to Mr. Pres- 
ton's latest estimate. 

The direct cause for Mr. Preston's 
report la, of course, the hitch In the 
negotiations for a Joint bridge caused 
by the insistence of the C. P. R. that 
cars belonging to competing lines be 
debarred from using any portion of 
the bridge. While Mayor Porter has 
wired Mr. Grant Hall, general man- 
ager of the C. P. R., urging the com- 
pany to recede from this attitude, no 
reply has been received, and it is 
generally believed in the City Hall 
that the company will not alter its 

Provincial Aid 

Whether the Provincial Govern- 
ment would be agreeable to con- 
tribute $200,000 to the aingle bridge — 
thia amount waa. promised for the 
Joint bridge— la still indefinite, but In- 
asmuch as Premier Oliver has In- 
formed Mayor Porter that the stand 
taken by the C. P. R. la unjustifiable, 
considerable assistance la expected 
from the Government. 

Mr. Preston stated that he was 
averse to having two alternative by- 
laws or a referendum submitted to 
the ratepayers. 

"I should think that it would be t 
better plan to put forward one plan, 
and that with th-s endorsement of 
the City Council." aald Mr. Preston. 
"Then the ratepayers would feel that 
the proposition submitted to them 
waa actually the choice ef the city, 
a: id that the City Council, after a 
year's Investigation, waa ready to give 
It undivided support. If two plans 
were submitted, the ratepayers would 
quite naturally consider that there* 
must be substantial faults with both."

The new act requires the reappoint-

Cor. Government and Johnsoh Sts. 

As foreshadowed In Wednesday's 
Colonist, the Government, acting on 
the advice of the Game Conservation 
Board, haa adopted the suggestions 
made some time ago and reiterated in 
these columns, and has rescinded the 
regulation allowing an open season 
of one week on hen p he asa n ts. 

They have- gone one better, and 
have curtailed the pheasant season 
generally by one week, the last date 
on which cock pheasants may be shot 
this year being now November II, 
with no open season at all for hens. 
Better late than neve*. This move 
will receive the commendation of all 
real sportsmen, who are not In the 
class which selfishly wants to shoot 
off all the game, while there la any 
to shoot, without regard for future T 
years or future generations. As 
pointed out in these columns several 
times since the pheasant season 
opened, the birds are, to put It mildly, 
scarce this year, no doubt owing to 
the mistaken policy of legalising the 
shooting of hens last year, so scarce 
Indeed In 8aanich that they were In 
danger, of extermination in that dis- 
trict, were hens allowed to be shot. 
~Aa 'admitte d f y t h» ~Qame Board/ 
there is abundant evidence^ that a 
number of hens have been killed, 
"ruthlessly shot and left where they 
fell," to use the words in the official 
announcement and explanation of the 
alteration In the regulations. It 
might also be added that there 1b 
abundant evidence that numbers of 
pheasants were killed before the 
legal date, and all sportsmen will 
agree that the Game Board is quite 
right In stating that it is quite Im- 
possible to patrol at all times and fn 
all places in the various districts, but 
at the same time are asking why it 
Is that, jvtth the admittedly enormous 
increase in the number of hunters, 
the additional revenue from licences 
has not been used in putting on at 
least a correspondingly larger staff 
of deputy wardens. 

Worse on Mainland 
Conditions on the mainland from 
all accounts have been worse than on 
the Island, but here, although all 
who know him will agree we have 
at least one highly-capable and ef- 
ficient warden, the "patrol" haB been 
totally, inadequate. 

The hunters of Victoria are for the. 
most part good sportsmen, and they 
have been asking for the abolition of 
the -open season on hen .pheasants be- 
cause- they know It Is In the >best in- 
terests of game conservation' and of 
sport. Now they have another sug- 
gestion to make, and that is. that 
the season on e.u*U shield be es- 
tended until the eat off the pea s. 
Just as all are agreed en the scarcity 
ot pheasants, so are all agreed on the 
abundance of quail. These birds are 
still In thousands throughout all the 
districts where quail t> are usually 
found, even though large number* 
have been shot, and, It is claimed, 
there Is no fear tot any harm being 
done by extending the season as sug- 

The official statement concerning 
the alteration in the pheasant shoot- 
ing season handed to the press yes- 
terday follows: 

Official Statement 
On the recommendation of the 
Game- Conservation Board the Game 
Regulations for 1911 have been 
amended, curtailing the pheasant 
shooting season, and closing the same 
on the night of November lltb, 
which is one week earlier than the 
date originally set. 

This Is the outcome of strong rep- 
resentation which haa been made to 
the Board by the various Game As- 
sociations on the mainland, which 
Include the districts of Vancouver. 
North Vancouver, Delta. Chllltwack, 
and Ladner. and supplemented by 
opinion obtained from the officials ot 
the Victoria and Island Fish and 
Game Association. The Game Con- 
servation Board also obtained reli- 
able reports from the officers- in the 
various districts from which it is evi- 
dent that with the greatly Increasad 
number of hunters the birds have 
not only been hunted on a far more 
extensive Mc«ie than In previous yon re 
but numbers of hen pheasants have 
been ruthlcvely *hot and left v/hrre 
they fell. In spite of the fact that th > 
Regulatlns had made provision for 
*hootlng hens luring the 1-ist week 
of the open season. 

Consequently the Intended privi- 
lege of shooting bens for a limited 
period has, had to be done away 
with, add hunters who are ieprlved 
of a week's shooting must blame 
those who abnsed the open season, as 
In spite of a number of prosecutions 
for "hen pheasant" cases, there Is 
abundant evldenco that a number of 
hens have been killed, it being quite 
Impossible to patrol at all times and 
in all places In the various districts. 
The Victoria and Island Fish and 
Game Association at the Secretary's 

request for their opinion wired as 
follows: — 

"Officials Victoria and Island Hah 
and Game Association unanimous In 
belief should be no open season for 
hen pheasants." 

Several of the associations on the 
Mainland requested that the season 
be closed at once, but the Board felt 
that sufficient time should he given 
for proper publicity and the above- 
mentioned date waa therefore chosen 
by which tlale sportsmen will have 
had a full month for shooting cocks. 
and the open week for hens, which 
would have started the next day. will 
be abolished. 

It Is hoped that all sportsmen will 
co-operate In making the closure 
date — November l«th — as widely 
known as possible. 


Close Games Seen in Last 
Night's League Match by 
Large Crowd — Perry Makes 
Fine Uphill Fight 



One Thousand Meriy Skaters 
Thronged Arena Last Even- 
ing—Largest Crowd~ Since 
First Opening 

In the Two Jacks billiard league 
last night Frost's team won from 
Hlnson's team by 11)4 to 1063, the

moyle. 260; Norton, 213; Lamb. 111. 
Total, 1013. 

Very keen interest is being taken In 
the league matches and (here was a 
large crowd on hand to see the play 
lost night. Possibly the most Inter- 
esting of the five games was that be- 
tween Perry and Petch, The, former 
was away behind as Petch was n'ear- 
ing his points, but made a great ef- 
fort to get on terms. All the games 
were closely contested, except that 
between the two captains, Hlnson be- 
ing completely off his game last night. 

This evening a battle royal is ex- 
pected in the handicap match between 
Hall and Creedon at 8 o'clock. These 
two players start' from the same mark 
of "receive 50," and are expected to 
put up a fine close struggle.

One thousand people at the Arena.

opportunity once more to don the

skating were plainly delighted to he 
again gliding around the spacious 
sheet of Ice to the music provided by 
Rowland's band. 

To the strains of appropriate dance 
music the many couples made the 
rounds with manifest seat and enjoy- 
ment and the speed artists were given 
|n opportunity between' whiles to

(There were some clever amateurs 
with both a burst of speed and an 
aptitude for difficult stunts, but the 
spacious rink gave an opportunity for 
all, including the novice, to enter 
Into the enjoyment of the evening. 

"This Is the largest crowd we have 
bad on a first night since the open- 
ing of the Arena some years ago," 
stated Mr. Lester Patrick, manager 
of the Arena, last evening. Mr. Pat- 
rick waa confident that there would 
continue to be large attendances this 
year, the war being over and all the 
boys home. 

— Mr. Patrick announced that tonight 
the rink will hold a special session. 
The band will be In attendance and 
there will also be a skating exhibition

and Pete Muldoon. manager of the 
Seattle team, were* also at the rink 
last evening. 

The British Columbia Electric

he will give an exhibition of fancy 
skating on 26-inch stilts. This stunt 
has never been performed hy any 
other skater In Canada or the United 
States and will certainly be .Interest-

Lloyd Cook' Will Undertake the 
Task of Guiding Millionaires 
on Ice — Last Year's Players 
Expected to Report Again 

VANCOUVER. Nov. ».— Krunk Pat- 
rick will not manage the. Vancouver 
hockey team In the 1818-30 cham- 
pionship race of the Pacific Coast 
Hockey Association. Finding that he 
cannot . handle both the playing and 
business ends of the game at the same 
time, tbe local magnate has relin- 
quished the managership of the team, 
and' has appointed Lloyd Cook, last 
year captain of the Millionaire squad, 
to manage tbe Millionaires in the com- 
ing series. Frank Patrick has had 
full charge of the Vancouver squad 
since the P.C.H.A. was organlbed a 
number of years ago. 

Lloyd Cook's signed contract to play 
with Vancouver this season has ar- 
rived at hockey headquarters and is 
locked in the strong box along with 
those of Alf. Skinner and the Adams 
brothers. Cook *ls one of the Van- 
couver star defence players. He has 
been with Frank Patrick's aggrega- 
tion since 1915, with the exception of 
the season of 1917, when he was with 
Spokane. He will play on the de- 
fence with Art Duncan this season. 

All matches in the P.C.H.A. series 
this Winter will go to a finish as in 
the past, the plan to adopt the Eastern 
system of cessation of hos'4Iitles If 
the teams are even at the end of 
twenty minutes' 'overtime play having 
been abandoned. Coast officials realise 
that the fans want decision contests, 
and the only change to be made in 
the overtime rules provides for a full 
ten-minute rest at the end of the 
third period and .before the players 
start Into overtime. In the pant only 
five minutes were allowed for the 
puck chasers to recuperate before 
starting play again. In the East the 
teams play twenty minutes overtime 
in the event of a tie at the end of the 
third period. If the teams are still 
tied the game is called off. The Coast 
system insures a decision. 

All Vancouver contracts have been 
sent out. and with the exception of 
Mickey Mackay and Barney Stanley, 
it Is expected that all members of 
last year's team will be on hand again. 
Players will report here December 18. 
Coast officials will shortly hold their 
annual meeting and get down to the 
business of drawing up a schedule. 
No decision has yet been reached re- 
garding the length of the season. 


Lipton Finds Yacht's Mast on 
Verge of Deterioration- 
Would Cost Huge Sum to 
Replace If Damaged 

NEW YORK. Nov. «.— Shamrock 
IV., Blr Thomas Lipton's America's 
Cup challenger, will be put overbefcrd 
in South Brooklyn in a few days and 
towed up to City Island. There she 
will be hauled out and housed for the 
Winter. Sir Thomas' houseboat Kil- 
larney, with the challenger's sails, al- 
ready has been taken to City Island. 
Her masts and spars will follow her 

The moving of the yacht was a re- 
sult of a recommendation of Charles 
E. Nicholson, her designer, after he 
Inspected her. The South Brooklyn 
yard, where she has been hauled out 
and housed in with galvanised iron 
since she arrived here shortly after the 
outbreak of the war In 1114, la 
Jammed with merchant ship work. 

The roof of the building In which 
the spars ssere kept was found to have 
caved in. During the tearing out of 
the cabins of the yachts to convert 
them for war work several bath tuba 
were tossed on the spar shed and the 
roof sagged under the weight. It waa 
found that the challenger's great hol- 
low wood mast was on the verge of 
deterioration. The mast, which is the 
laritest of its kind ever constructed, 
cost 130.000, and It was figured It 
would cost twice that sum to replace 
II, even if the work could be done in 
the crowded shipyards of the United 
Kingdom. The sails stowed away on 
the Klllarney were~in good condition. 


The Montreal Correspondent of The

his college by a run which, though the

Since the Now York Yacht Club 
hap consented to race Sir Thomaa 
Llpton'a 'Shamrock IV. for tho Amcr- 
ica'a Cup next summer, ovary de- 
tail In connection with tho challen- 
ger will be of Interest from now on. 
Curiouo it is and an instance of tho 
■hrewdnes* of tho Irish baronet that 
although tho boat has boon on this 
side slnee 1914 only the scantiest 
Information about her lines has boon 
allowed to roach the ears of the 
yachting critic*. Vary' faw, except 
some close friend* of Upton, hare 
had a chance to get a poop at 
Shamrock's under-body, for she has 
been closely boxed up at the foot 
of Twenty-seventh, South Brooklyn, 
and both night and day ha* boon un- 
der the closest surveillance. Still a 
few bits of Important information 
regarding her rigging and the 
amount of canvas she la expected to 
carry have leaked out, and, singu- I 
larly enough, they floated along from 
the Old World. 

To begin with, she will have a 
mast of 160 feet, something extra- 
ordinary for a yacht To foot on the 
water line. The" groat Importance 
of the point can beat be understood 
when a comparison I* made with tho 
Resolute, Vanltie and Defiance, the 
three boat* built for the defence of 
the cup. To go on the figures ao 
far obtainable Shamrock's truck will 
tower more than 30 foot over that of 
the Resolute. 26 feet over Vanltio, 
and 20 Joet over the Defiance. The 
significance of the more lofty main- 
stick Is that tho Upton vessel will 
have to give a time' allowance to 
whichever boat Is selected to moat her. 
and whichever it is, more or loam, will 
not be known until tho final selection 
is made. 

IU-X/uck of Former Shamrocks 
In his three previous attempts to 
lift the cup Upton's challenge* 
were not attended with any great 
amount of good luck, but the tradi- 
tion in that the fourth Shamrock al- 
ways works the charm. The pro- 
verbial, good fortune credited to a 
four-leaf shamrock . Is what mostly 
tempted Sir Thomas to try the fourth 
time, and the yann has attracted a 
lot of credulity, until in a ascent 
visit to Ireland ha was reported to 
have stated that If he failed this time 
he would build a fifth challenger, 
and anyway that he would keep on 
building Shamrocks as Jong as he 
possessed a penny to buy a lag screw 
to' put In a racer's keel. 

No yachting contest on earth has 
produced more strikingly unlucky 
incidents than the America's Cup con- 
test, and Upton has come in for hla 
shares' Who* he first grasped the 
Idea or challenging for the trophy 
he wanted to represent the Royal 
Cork Yacht Club, tho oldest sailing 
olub in the world, but the members 
there were not in a position to back 
tho challenge, and there was nothing 
♦for Upton, but, to send the deft from 
the Royal Utoter Yacht Club. But 
neat step was to secure a 'designer, 
and here again he met with a set- 
back, for George L. Watson, who had 
designed Valkyrie, It for Lord Dun- 
raven, refused the offer to' design 
Shamrock I., and Upton was forced 
to turn to W1U Fife, of Fault*, who 
had little or no experience In map- 
ping out big racing machines. Fife's 
boat was followed by a share of 111- 
ucl|, for In one of the races against 

un fit— a, N , nnd, it has beea said 
wince by those who seamed to be on 
the inside that she was the chief 

.use of Watson's early demise. He 
fljeeid to have overworked himself 

i peri men ring with models and plaits 
•md this, added to the disappoint- 
ment he felt over Iter fafture, work- 
ed: en him to the extent that be suc- 
cumbed without much of a fight. 
Whether each reports are true must 
forever remain a question, bat that 
ho made a huge mistake In the con- 
struction of the hull he admitted one J 
day in a conversation with the writ- 
er at the Sri* Baain. He aald that 
the fault of the boat was that she 
buried her nose too much when car- 
rying her' full racing clothes, and 
that defect could only be remedied 
by having the meat reatopped. about 
eighteen inches further aft. In order 
to perform the alteration the yacht 
would have to be hauled out Into the 
cradle and the underbody would 
have to bo loosened from the lead 
fin. The job would. take about two 
months' time and it was an imposs- 
ibility whan Watson made the re- 
marks. So the Shamrock II. had to 
carry h*r *>fect in the three race*, 
m the "second one of which she waa 
only defeated by * small margin. It 
waa the clever work of Charley Barr\ 
skipper of the Columbia, that saved 
th# cup. from a trip across to It* 
original home. 

Edward VII.'s Harrow Escape 
In the trial races at home before 
ah* started for America, Shamrock n 
had Shamrock I. as a trial boat and 
the racing of the pair showed that 
•var the thirty-mile course the new 
boat waa anywhere from ten to 
twelve minutes faster than the old 
one. The partisan* of Shamrock XL 
were delighted, and so was Llpton, 
but In order that there should be ev 
real tryoat a throe-cornered aeries 
wa* arranged between the Sham- 
rook* and the famous yawl Sybarite, 
thay showing phenomenal speed, and 
like the cup racers, about ninety 
feet on the wat%rline. The races cre- 
ated such a furore among high-class 
yachting men abroad that the lite 
King Edward VII. requested a place 
on the deck of Shamrock II. in (he 
first race, and when tho yachts were 
Jockeying at. the starting line He was 
seen walking around unconcernedly, 
although there was a wicked Jump to 
the sea. 

It was a perfect sailing day, with 
a bieexe strong and true, but all of 
a sudden a squall came tearing out 
Of the westerly end of the Solent and 
hit the Shamrock JJ. with a rattle 
and a clang. In an instant there 
waa a loud crash when mast, sails, 
rt*e*lng and everything aboard the 
yacht toppled with a roar over the 
aide, leaving the King, the skipper and 
crew standing 6n the deck. Seeing 
the danger the sailing master of the 
sister ship wheeled around intending 
; $o come to the assistance «»f the 
stricken one, but the Squall struck 
Shamrock I., breaking off her guff 
and blowing her topsail tp pieces, so 
that the mainsail was 'hanging In a 
dangerous condition. A majority of 
the yachts around Were dismasted, 
but fortunately no one was hurt, 
King Edward all the time kept hi* 
ilea* on dank, and although blocks 
and rigging were strewn all around 
Sim, he escaped without a scratch.

Decisions Reached by Amateur 
Union on Applications ?or 
Reinstatement from- Victoria 
and Vancouver Men 

played a couple of game* of hockey, 
but he will never be able to re-enter , 
the professional game. 

Several Victoria boys came up for 
their card*, and some received them 
and others did net. The moat im- 
portant of those waa ^om Johnson, 
well-known fn coast lacrosse circles.

Terminals a few years ago. His work 
la goal was a. feature of the team's 
play. He was granted a card, though 

ltseems rather strange that he ahould 
get one when boys like 8hore and 
Boa should be denied the privilege. 

"Cotton" Brynjolfaon, another Vic- 
toria boy who played professional la- 
crosse here with the local team, and 
west coached and managed the Foun- 
dation senior amateur champions last 
Summer, had hi* caa* held ov^r for 
further confirmation regarding hla 

past sport record. 

Dal Thomas, of Victoria, an old- 
time Welsh rugby professional. Was 
not present at the meeting, and his 
case was held over. Scotty Mackay, 
of boxing fame, and a returned man. 
waa granted hi* card, 

Al. Daviea of the Victoria Athletic 
Club of pre-war days did not get any 
sympathy from, the officials. He la 
out and out pro. and this was enough 
for them. His application for a white- 
washing was denied him. ' 

There were several more who came 
up at the meeting .but they are not 
a* wall known a* those mentioned. 
There is sure to be a lot of talk about 
this and that man getting his card, 
but the union had studied each case 
previously and these officials are lp 4 
position to know Just what is whit. 

VANCOUVER, B.C.. Wav. «.— At 
the meeting of the British Columbia 
Amateur Athletic Union held here 
tonight, about eighteen former pro- 
fessional athletes came up for , br 
sent in their applications for amateur 

One of these, man is Corey Hesse. 
He has done more for the amateur 
game in this city than any other man. 
He has been ou,t of professional la- 
crosse for the past few years, and 
since then has been devoting a large 
part of his spare time to the develop- 
ment of amateur athletics. 

Another local man who got "the 
sympathy of the union was Wllhur 
Foley, who played a game Or two 
with the Terminal Lacrosse Club, last 
Summer. This boy has been in the 
army, and this had a lot to do with 
his gaining a card. 

Bill Brand, local ball player, whefe'' 
application did not get a hearing at 
the local meeting, appeared his case 
to the provincial union, and they took 
a different look. at the state of affairs.

the Commercial Baseball League. <■

The chief fault of many Auction 
Bridge players, even experienced 
ones, is a failure to realise the ele- 
ment of partnership In the game. 

The fact of a partnership should 
engender consideration and restraint 
The first aim when you sit down at 
h card table should be to get on 
good terms with your partner. 

If your partner 1* a weak player. 
refrain from making it clear by your 
manner that you so regard him. If 
he is a nervous and highly strung 
peraon, don't worry him or nag at 
him. Above all, don't treat him as 
If he were a hostile element or dis- 
regard him. 

The cardinal sin at Auction Bridge 
.1* to deceive your partner. It is the 
essence of good team-manshlp to 
give him as much information by 
your call* and play a* you legiti- 
mately can. If this elementary fact 
w*re fully realised it would stop 
much unprofitable discussion about 
right apd wrong calls. 

It Is a mistake to dogmatize about 
calling at Auction Bridge. The text- 
baoks lay down the principles of 
bidding. But there can be no ab- 
solute hard-and-fast rules. 

In a general sense, it may be said 
that a wrong call is one that de- 
ceives yodr partner and a right call 
1* one that give* him information 
on which he may be able to act. The 
due recognition of this would act 
as a wholesale deterrent, not only of 
wild and freak calls, hut also of 
other more legitimate bids. 

A call that might be quite correct 
if you were certain that the hand 
were going to be played in the suit 
you call, may become quite Incor- 
rect by the remembrance that your 
opponent* will have something to 
say In the matter, and that yaur call 
may totally mislead your partner aa 
to the trick-making value of your

Mr. James H. Beatty Reports on 
Winnipeg Educational Con- 
vention — Assimilation of 
Foreigners Urged 

— — 


"It was a truly WwUra Ides and 
a Rotary Idea and eras the biggest 
thing In this oarticalar Una ever 
paued off In Canada," declared Mr. 
James H. Beatty yesterday before the 
Rotary Club, when speaking of the 
educational conference at Winnipeg. 
to which he was the club's accredited 


"Many people seemed to think 
that oar purpose was to revise the 
textbooks In our schools, but It was 
nothing like that." said Mr. Beatty. 
"As a matter of fact the conference's 
big object was to lay , the founda- 
tions for better Canadian citizenship 
by devising a plan for the Improve- 
ment of our * eehool system right 
through Canada. 

"We . are up* against a difficult 
problem in Canada." continued Mr. 
Beatty. "Forty per cent of the people 
of our prairie provinces are foretgh- 
bom and eighty-five distinct lan- 
guages and dialects are spoken. In 
Winnipeg, ag an extreme example, 
sixty-five different languages are 
spoken. The conference favored a 
policy thai would restrict immigra- 
tion until such time as this polyglot 
may could be assimilated." 

Mr. Beatty said the conference was 
averse to having religion taught In 
the ecbeote. and that even the clergy 
representatives among the 1.884 
delegates objected to such a plan, 
holding that it would lead to sec- 
tarianism — obviously a detrimental 

effects of the 
bound to be far-reaching." said Mr. 
Beatty. "If it only provided a vehicle 
for such representative men and 
women to get together we were 
amply repaid for holding such an 
event I feel that it will go a long 
way towards the attainment of what 
81r James Atkins told us should be 
the nation's greatest desire — a popu- 
lation Of Canadians based en quality 
and not quantity, a Canada not gov- 
erned by any group of labor ites, 
capitalists. Intellectuals or.- religion- 

» educationalists or manufacturers, 
by the peopl* as a whole."

render of 1,800 Germans will ha 
asked so they may stand trial for 
offences committed hi Belgium dur- 
ing the war have been forwarded te

The, Indictments are principally 
based upon the execution Of Bel- 
gian civilians at Louvain and other 
towns, the deportations of Belgian 
workmen,* the forced labor exacted 
from prisoners of war, the treatment 
of young men who attempted te 
cross the frontier to Join the Bel-

colony having two large . shipyards 
whioh are now constructing vessels up

smaller shipyards employing the same 
class ef workmen. One eff the' yards 
gives the following table ef average 
rates of pay per day for its workmen 
immediately previous to the war and 
at the present time. The rates are 
given In Hongkong currency; the value 
ef the Hongkong dollar averaged

however, to state the exact rates of 
pay, since most workmen of this class 
are boarded by their employers, and 
the cost of board has practically 
doubled. Taken all in all, the man-

V. * & Receiver Now WllMwc to Cat 

$10,000 Off Urn Value of Assets 

of Defunct System 

A reduction of $10,000 In the orig- 
inal figure which the receiver of the 
V. A 8. Railway Company was willing 
to take for the assets of the road as 
they exist on the right-of-way between 
Victoria and Sidney, was announced 
yesterday by Receiver Roberts who 
was in the city and discussed with 
J'remier Oliver the possibility of the 
Canada National Railway taking over 
the line at the reduced figure. 

The original ftp tire placed by the 
Receiver on the assets was 140,000. 
Chief Engineer Proctor, of the Pro- 
vincial Department of Railways, had 
estimated their value at approximate- 
ly 128.000. while the engineer of the 
Canada National figured them a( 
about $17,000, that Is for those as- 
sets of value to the latter concern 
should It take over the road. 

Mr. Roberts has agreed to submit 
to the Premier a detailed list of 'as- 
sets with prices he considered should 
be paid and 'when this is In hand the 
Premier will again take up with the 
Canada. National the matter of the 
acquisition by the latter' of the sys- 
tem to the end .that the ratseh needed 
service to Sidney may. If possible, be 
again instituted.

"Look fare. Sir Geoffrey, you may 
know something • about » genehallogy 
Shout Gutter; K'a dosslt. ' doaslt, that's 
what U la .and what's more It's a 
about butter; its dosslt.- dosslt, that's 
what it Is, and what's more its a 
two-heunce pat." -•, 

Who that has seen "Our Boys" In 
the good old days does not remember 
this outburst of his pent-up feelings 
by the jolly old butterman. Perkyn 

Everyone who sees this play which 
is being produced by a company of 
local amateurs at the Royal Victoria 
Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday 
next in aid of the V.A.D.'s end 
Friendly Help Society, will love old 
Perkyn before the play to finished. 
These who have seen' the company at 
rehearsal are unanimous In their 
opinion that Mr. It. T. Ward gives a 
powerful rendering of this at once 
humorous and pathetic part.. Every 
line that he utters brings s laugh or 
a tear. Tit . ' . 

The' character that one's memory 
recalls as the next outstanding fea- 
ture Of this fine play Is that Of the 
little lodging-house "slavey," Belinda, 
whose quaint appearance and oddities 
of speed) embody the quintessence of 
wholesome humor. The, ^management 
have been most fortunate In securing 
the services of the well-known Mlas 
Bobble Stephens for /this part, one 
which she« makes the mosT>of and 
does full Justice to. 

A late recruit to the company to 
Mr. McCallum. who recently made 
such a bit Id the leading role-id "The 
New Boy." Like the good sports- 
man that h« Is. he 'has consented ; to 
characterise a comparatively minor 
part which he does in hla inimitable 
style and in so doing adds no Utile 
to the* finish of the production. 

Mr. Colin Mackensie to the stage 
manager and has proved a most keen 
and discriminating critic and to have 
an ability In handling difficult situa- 
tions and getting the most out of 
the material at his disposal, qualities 
which go a long way towards the 
making of success. Mr. Mackenzie 
has lately returned from overseas* 
where ' he was associated with Mr. 
Richard Day as stage manager in 
the mualcal comedies which the latter 
wrote and which they produced to- 
gether and which did ao much to 
brighten the hours off duty of our 
men at the front. The company are 
working wholeheartedly at rehearsals 
under Mr. Mackensie. and no stone 
is being left unturned to asake the 
play a success.

VARIETY While there have been, 

THEATRE in stage history, big pan- 
orama pictures, there has 
never been one that approaches "The 
Eternal Magdalene" in novelty and 
completeness. Things that' it was Im- 
possible to achieve on the stage when 
this play was one of the reigning hits 
In New York, Chicago and Boston, and 
later In the principal cities of the 
country, hsve been achieved by the 
all-seeing camera. 

One of the points that Qoldwyn em- 
phasises with regard to its plcturlaa- 
tlon of "The Eternal Magdalene" to 
that the story to a modern one, with 
Its scenes laid in a modern American 
city, and that it deals with the vital 
present day aocial problems of any 
typical community in the country. 

Margaret Marsh has an appealing 
role in "The Eternal Magdalene." 
which will be shown at the Variety 
again today. 

PANT ACES The novelty offering of 
THEATRE the Kilkenny Pour In -one 
of the feature positions 
'on the current bill of Pantages vaude- 
ville captivates the audiences at once. 
There is always a laudable effort on 
the letter's part to "stop the show" 
with requests for more of the talented 
Irishmen's contributions. An elderly 
gentleman who reminds one a little 
bit of "Mr. Jlggs" of the comic sup- 
plement, his wife, a caricature In 
greens, and two dapper little chaps In 
dinner Jackets end straw bats, make 
up the personnel of the company and 
they wind up their Irish chatter la the 
real brogue with a singing number 
that Is a marvel of harmony and tone. 

ROMANO If you want to sea, a 

THEATRE bona-flde specimen of 
made-to-order laughter 
be sure to notice the "stomach laugh" 
which 3. Fsrrell MacDonald registers 
m one of the scenes of "This Hero 
Stuff." tbe satirical comedy la which 
William Russell will be seen at the 
Romano tonight and tomorrow night 
The scenario p r es c ribed that Rus- 
sell command MacDonald To laugh 
heartily In order to cover his escape 
from a room without exciting sus- 
picion. When Director King of the 
"Prying A" gave the signal to start 
the action, Mae Done Id burst into 
■urh uproarious and realistic laughter 
that everyone on the set at the time 
wondered what It could all be about. 
Later MacDonald explained that he

Aldermanic talk about converting 
the hide* of stray dogs into revenue 
has started discussion which' yester- 
day resulted in the. sending of many 
supplementary suggestions to the City 
Halt Those responsible for the sug- 
gestions think the dog-to-dollar pro- 
cess to a fine idea, but they feel that 
the whole scheme to capable of en- 
largement. They would have the 
proposition more comprehensive and 
possibly more lucrative. j- . '., 

"Why stop • at the ntinketton ' - of 
hides?" agked one authority. "Why 
not use tho by-products? 1 see that 
some dogs held in the pound are be- 
ing sold to ranchers at Gordon Head 
to chase weasels, but there are prob- 
ably a good many that are only use- 
ful when dead. Now, regarding these 
dead dogs, why shouldn't the city 
arrange to sell the carcasses for dog 
biscuit, or have the bones segregated 
and sold separately aa fertiliser? The 
hides, ss has already been proposed 
by some of the aldermen, may be sold 
and tanned for leather, but why step 
there? Why not utilise everything 
but the bark?" 

A high elty official yesterday re- 
marked that even the bark might be 
used in the tanning p r o c ess. 

Up till tiow the city pound has 
been regarded as anything but a 
revenue-producer. Seme people In 
the City Hall now look forward to ft 
time when the department may not 
only reach the self-sustaining state, 
but may add , considerably to Vic- 
toria's prestige as an industrial cen- 

Mayor Porter, howe ver , is inclined 
to ridicule the proposal*. "Boom* to 
me the city might add' -a sausage 
plant to the -pound department," he 
remarked yesterday. 

Nor dees the Mayor take seriously 
the ■reports that, dogs from the pound 
are relieving Gordon Head of a 
plague of weasels. 

"It's a Joke," he commented yester- 
day. "Why, not on* in a thousand

themselves of late on the fact, now

, WASHINGTON. Nov. 6.— General 
discussion of the proposed 46-hour 
week convention proceeded at this 
afternoon's sitting ot the Internatipn- 
al Labor Conference, and will be 
oontinued tomorrow. The proceedings 
opened with a protest from/ Mr. 
Jouhauz, French delegate, at reports 
published In United States newspap- 
ers, that during the events of yester- 
day the Labor group s.\?ered a set- 
back on the eight-hour day. Baron 
Mayer Pesplancbes. Italian delegate, 
followed with a motion that an of- 
ficial communique be Issued at the 
end of each session. There was the 
implied suggestion (although Baron 
Deaplanches did not so state specifi- 
cally) that the press be excluded 
from plenary sessions of the confer- 

The chairman observed that news- 
paper owners and editors are at per- 
fect liberty to draw any deductions 
they please, either 1 from the abund- 
ance oa* their Ignorance or their 
knowledge of the situation. 

"It is Impossible to ctop the press," 
added Cueva Garcia, delegate from 
Ecuador, "J come," he added, amid 
'some murmur of protest from other 
nationalities — "I come from the 
freest country In the world without 
exception. "I come from a country 
where the press can say anything 
the press will." 

Mr. Rowell, Canadian government 
delegate, warmly* opposed exclusion of 
the press. The - standing orders, he 
said, provided that sessions of the 
conference should — b» — open — to" the 
press. Therefore, unless the standing 
orders were changed, which he 
thought would be most Inadvisable, 
the conference had no right to ex- 
clude the press, nor did Mr. Rowell 
think that an official communique 
would add to the ability of the press 
representatives to furnish a report. 

Baron Desplanohes eventually with- 
drew his motion and discussion of 
the 48-hour week convention pro- 

Mr. Baldsi, Italian Workers' dele- 
gate, expressed his belief that the em-; 
ployers* proposals should receive an 
"honorable sepulchre." He submitted 
that they contained an effort to take 
from the workers certain principles 
already accepted. 

, Mr. Barnes. British Government 
delegate, thought that amendments 
should be Invited at the earliest op- 
portunity. The first, he felt, should | 
be to substitute the words "an eight- 
hour day, having 48 hours in the 

Mr. Tayerle, workers' delegate from 
Czecho-Slovakia, was of the • opinion 
that the eight-hour day should be 
applied not only (o industry but also 
to general trade and agriculture. Oth- 
erwise people would leave the coun- 
try for the towns to secure the better 
social conditions. 

Gonzales Bazas, employers* dele- 
gate from Peru, has submitted a no- 
tion that the conference should de- 
fine labor as "every human effort, 
physical or Intellectual, tending to- 
ward production, distribution, accu- 
mulation and consumption of wealth

, , The Time to Help 
The Bolshevist regime .has been 
marked by violence,- bloodshed and 
horror. It Is. credibly, reported to be 
a minority movement. It has ruth- 
lessly suppressed free speech and a 
free press, and has 'consistently re- 
fused to call a constituent assembly 
in which a majority of the people 
would control. «uch a government 
cannot, permanently remain in power 
there. In the course of time -it must 
.be supplanted by a gpverrtment which 
more nearly represents the majority 
of the people. The quicker that new 
government comes the better. Metter 
both for Russia and the rest of the 
world. Might it not -he plausibly ar- 
gued that since the Allies and Amer- 
ica are In Russia, since they cannot 
withdraw without deserting to a hor- 
rible fate a portion of the Russian 
people to which they are. under great

■ The Home Secretary has appointed 
:i committee to consider the official 
adoption of the twenty -four-hour 
method of expressing time. After all. 
the day Is divided Into twenty-four 
hours, as the week la parcelled Into 
seven days. It would be quite as 
sensible to talk of Monday. Tuesday, 
Wednesday a.m. or p.m.. ignoring 
Thursday, Friday and Saturday. *um to 
make the twelve hours do double 
duty. When the hour Is obviously j 
fourteen, why not say so? Why eall I 

It two p.m.? When it la evidently 
two whjr' camouflage it as two a.m.? 
Ah. you say. but we have done It for 
centuries. It is part of our ancient 
heritage. And we cannot, you say. 
tear up these roots of an historic 
past without injury to tradition and 
spirit. Nonsense. We can. It to u 
easy ma the passage of the gun-dial to 
clock. During the war the army went 
by the twenty-four-hour system, for 
good reasons of clear definition, and 
found It quite simple.

Sir. — As a mother of seven' chil-

Saper to protest against the action of 
ie Boqulmalt Council in ceasing to 
contribute to the upkeep of the Fab' 
Ho Ubrsry. Most children In the ad- 
vanced school stage fall bock on the 
library for references relating to 
their school work ond also for the 
numerous works of tho popular 
authors which their teachers advise 
them to rood. I think It Is a poor 
policy to cut off this valuable source 
of learning from our children be- 
cause a few unwise- people seo fit to 
boggle over o sum which Is far less 
than the actual value of tho library 
and who seem to consider a new 
Municipal Hall a far more important 
matter than a community of well 
Informed people. '.

The Market 

Sir, — I read In today's Colonist that 
the retail clerks strongly oboot to 
tho return of the Wednesday market 
Now these men are British subjects, 
and, as such, surely believe in fair 

Is It fair play that fifty Chinese 
peddlers are allowed to peddle all 

over tho town on Wednesday from 
daylight to dark selling exactly the 
some produce as tho farmer, vis., 
dairy produce, fruit or neb, and yet 
wo are denied these same privileges? 

Is it fair play that while tho China- 
man Only pays 11.00 licence to the 
city and Is allowed to soil six days a 
week, wo pay $150 for two days' sell- 
ing a week, ond those days limited to 
certain hours? 

The market committee promised 
that when they changed market day 
from Wednesday to Tuesday they 
would stop all Chinese .peddling on 
the Wednesday half-holiday.. They 
have failed to keep their promise. Id 
this fair play? 

The sanitary condition of the mar- 
ket Is a dlstgrace to the town, but the 
stallholders have had patience long 
enough, and the time will not be far 
distant when we got our own market 
building, and the stallholders will 
then sell their produce any day of the 
week that suits the public (not the 
retail clerks) the best, as this is the 
law of tho land In rsgard to public 
markets, which was passed by Magis- 
trate Jay's finding when the stall- 
holders wore had up for selling pro- 
duce on a Saturday half-holiday. 

In regard to the retail clerks' pro- 
posal to olose the shops at f o'clock 
on Saturday night: Is Victoria so 
flourishing that it can do without the 
farmers' money, as that is the only 
chance we have to shop? 

If the farmers stopped work at 8 
o'clock the world -would soon starve, 
and tho retail clerks Would have to 
turn farmers, and It would do them 
food to get a taste of real work .

Matted Milk. Avoid, 



Mrs. Charlotte Cameron, F.R.O.8.. 
the author and traveller, has returned 
to London with many vivid stories 
of present-day life In Alaska and 
Northwest Canada, where she has 
been carrying out British propagan- 
da work, says The London Dally 

The "character" of Skagway, at 
ths gate of Klondike. Is a Mrs. Pul- 
len. an able woman who keeps the 
local hotel, a rambling old piece full 
of the lore of the gold rush days, 
Mrs. PuUon also keeps a farm, and 
the guests each morning find a bowl 
of milk on the table from yhlch they 
skim their own cream. 

Mrs. Pullen also has much of the 
saloon furniture used by the notor- 
ious "Soapy" Smith. Including a 
faked card .table with a secret niche 
for the old gambler to hide hie aces. 
"Soapy" smith was shot, and curio 


hunters have all but carried away 
his tombstone. 

Mrs. tlameron found "Bob" Hen- 
derson, pensioned by the U. 8. Oov- 
ernmnet for first "finding the gold, 
still "mushing" along after fresh 
"strikes." In an old broken down 
shanty with half a mirror and a few 
old rags far covering was "Kate." 
the Indian wife of "Jim" Carmack" 
Kate discovered the - gold on the 
world famed "Bonansa" claim while 
washing clothes In the creek. 
of Gold Mi 

Kate never accustomed herself to 
the life of a millionairess, and wt-en 
staying, at the Palace Hotel, San 
Francisco, afraid of losing her way. 
biased a trail to her room by cut- 
ting notches on the stairway. In 
those days Kate had a bodice* of pare 
gold nuggets. 

Still farther north Mrs. Cameron 
came to the errantry where the Mala- 
mnte dogs are "man's own brother." 
The i dogs, used for drawing slefgba 
enormous distances, detest the 
months, and are bea r ded 


out to Indians living on the banks 
of the Tukon River at 18s. a month. 
Here, very unhappy, they meet their 
enemy the mosquito, and/ to get a 
little peace bury themselves up to 
the neck in the soft mud by tho 
river until the sun goes down. 

In the winter there is a dag sleigh 
mail twice a week from Seward to 
Nome (Alaska), a distance of 1,880 
miles. The dogs cover about 48 to 
Id miles a day, and many compete 

»the Nome "Derby" over a course 
488 miles. 

Mrs. Cameron wss struck by the 
activities of the American traders ad 
Nome. They are rapidly building up 
a tr e mendou s for buslnegs with Si- 
beria, the most .valuable skins being 
brought across the Bearing Sea In 
small schooners.

OTTAWA, Nov. 6. — The Prince of 
Wales reached Ottawa last evening, 
and will spend five days here in rec- 
reation before going to the United 
States. None but social function! are 
awaiting him here, the Canadian Club 
luncheon on Saturday being the only 
public affair His Royal Highness will 

Yesterday the Prince stopped _hls 
tralh along the way and upont half an, 
hour fraternizing with the staff of the* 

The United States Government will 
meet the Prince In Ottawa with a spe- 
cial train which fs practically the same 
one on which President Wilson made 
his recent trip through the United 
States, and this train will carry the 
royal party to Washington, Annapolis 
and New York, at which point the 
Prince will embark dn his ship, the 
M.M.8. Renown, on « which he' will 
travel to Halifax and England. ; 

MONTREAL, Nov., 8.— At Flavelle, 
20 miles west of Trenton, the Prince 
boarded the locomotive of his*, train 
and personally drove the train 'Into 

While there has been some delay in 
securing: a right* of way for the Great 
Central, Lake 'branch of 'the Esqui- 
mau & Nanaimo Railway from Port 
Albernl, due largely to the owners of 
the sub-dlvislona along {he line be- 
ing located at distant places, the bulk 
of the right of way has been secured, 
and clearing operations are being 
pushed ahead so that this work may 
be completed to enable grading to be 
proceeded with, which in all proba- 
bility will be practicable by the first 
of the year, if not earlier. About 50 
men are now employed on this clear- 
ing, and the number is being added 
to from day to day. Good progress 
la being made by the contractors. 

When asked by a Colonist reporter 
whether the company intended to In- 
crease its train service to Courtenay 
In the near future, Mr. H. E. Beasley, 
general superintendent of the E. & 
N., stated yesterday that the man- 
agement had decided that the de- 
velopment and consequent Increase In 
passenger travel to the Courtenay dis- 
trict In the past three months had 
Justified the decision to Increase the 
service, and this was promised to be 
Inaugurated early in the new year, 
probably not later than April 1. pos- 
sibly earlier; and If present Indica- 
tions are any criterion, this daily train 
service will also be extended to Port 

"General conditions on the Island 
tributary to our line," said Mr. Beas- 
ley. "are particularly -promising. The 
lumber, coal and industrial interests 
show healthier Jndlcatlona Ihaa have. _ 
obtained for some years, and we have 
every" reason to anticipate that the 
general development on the Island, 
which has received a serious setback 
as a result of war conditions, will 
warrant the company In increasing its 
service to encourage such develop- 

When asked if It was the Intention 
of the company to 'extend its line be- 
yond Courtenay this year, Mr. Beas- 
ley, stated . that the question of ex- 
tending the line to .Duncan , Bay 
next year is being considered by the 
management, and while nothing 
definite has been decided, there Is 
every prospect of "this work being 
proceeded with.

Generally the Victoria makes her last

one of the latest ever recorded here. 

Nome this Winter will have a larger 
population than it had last Winter. 
At present the weather is remarkable 
for the late Fall, th# temperature hav- 
ing dropped scarcely below freezing 

Nome's business last Summer was 
the best In 'five years, due largely to 
the Increased Siberian trade. Ac- 
cording to estimates $950,000 worth

"If Victoria is to have more com- 
mercial shipbuilding, and If such a 
proposition is financially sound, I feel 
that now la the time to get out and 
secure it." declared President J. F. 
Scott, addressing the Rotary Club yes- 
terday at Its regular luncheon in the 
Empress Hotel. 

Mr. Scott announced that, if the 
membership was agreeable, he pro- 
posed to appoint a committee of five 
to go thoroughly Into the whole situa- 
tion regarding shipbuilding' In Victo- 

Mr. Scott recalled the pioneer work 
which the Rotary Club carried out in 
the recent negotiations for more ship- 
building contract], and he' held that 
the club was primarily responsible for 
bringing the question to a .head. He 
named Mr. J. D. O'Connell for hla 
conspicuous work in the movement. 

"We cannot afford to wait, and irn- 
les« it Is Impossible to proceed along 
any other route, we* should net con- 
tinually go back to the Government 
for support," continued Mr. Scott. 
"The -proposed committee would In- 
vestigate the question thoroughly, .and, 
If the proposition seems encouraging. 
It would assist in every way possible 
the existing shipyards to secure new 

The Rotary Club as a whole heartily 
endorsed the proposal. 

Dr. M. Raynor, chairman of the re- 
cently-formed boys" work committee, 
announced a mass meeting for teen- 
age boys at the Armory next Wednes- 
day evening. He said that there would 
be speakers representing the Rotary 
Club, the Boys' Naval Brigade and 
Navy League, the schools. Boy Scouts, 
Y.M.C.A. and churches. A band and 
vocal programme is being arranged, 
he said. 

Dr. Raynor said hla committee in- 
tended to follow up the meeting with 
a census of the boy life of this city and 
then a constructive programme with 
a view to interesting the youth of the 
city in healthful and instructive work. 
He said that the committee had de- 
cided to offer a prise of a $50 .bond 
to the boy who suggested the beat

VANCOUVER, Nov. 6.— There is 
not an early prospect of having a line 
of steamers established between Brit- 
ish Columbia ports and Eastern Can- 
ada, owing to the fact that not 
enough business is offering to make 
such a venture a paying proposition. 
A letter dealing with the coast to 
coast service question and the matter 
of having a Canadian customs officer 
at fhe port of New York from H. H.

Mr. Stevens points out that the 
Government Is ready to inaugurate 
such a service when the business of- 
fering warrants it, but so far, efforts 
to secure business have been Unavail- 
ing- He urged the Board of Trade 
to do what It can to provide the neces- 
sary business. On the subject of cus- 
toms officer, the council reaffirmed the 
attitude of the hoard on this matter 
and appointed a special committee.

The contracts for the new vessels 
were passed by order-in-councl), and 
naturally Mr. A. Wallace expressed 
gratification at the news. 

"It means that our yard will be kept 
going full time until June at least," 
he said. "We hope to take on a num-

Anglican Hynod's Action 
MONTH BAIt/No'v/ «.— At its meet- 
ing this morning the Provincial Synod 
of the Anglican Church in Eastern 
Canada approved of, the Canadian 
Book of Common Prayer as revised. 


Pyorrhea, with a premature loss of 
teeth, is almost inevitable if you do not 
properly care (or your gums. Here is 
the explanation: 

4 As you age, the body tissues natural- 
ly relax. You see thin tissue loosening 
In the neck. It goes on in your gums, 
too. As you grow older, your gums 
shrink below the normal gum line. 
Through lack of care they become 
spongy and inflamed. Then you have 
Pyorrhea (Riggs' Disease). Four out 
of five people over forty have Pyorrhea. 
And many under forty, also. 

Don't let a tender gum spot de- 
velop. These tender spotss breed 
disease germs which enter the- system 
through tiny openings — infecting the 
joints or tonsflj — or causing other 
ailments. Immediately get Forhan's, 
which positively prevents Pyorrhea if 
used in time and used consistently. 
Forhan's tones the gums and hardens 
them. They in turn keep the teeth 
healthy. Brush your teeth with For- 
han's. It cleans them !^iej»tifical!y — 
keeps them white and cleani 

If gum-shrinkage has already set 

r in, start using Forhan's and consult a 

dentist immediately for special treat;

■Everywhere there Is 
fast-spreading growth 
the occult. it # takes various forms 
in different countries, and, Indeed, 
with different Individuals. , 

Shortly before the armistice a man 
wrote to the papers stating that his 
brother, an officer iii France, had 
ppeared to their father, who was 
bad and had much wished to 
see t^he son before he died. 

The father told the family that* 
same day of the "visit" saying he 
could now die happy. He died next 
day. and two or three days later the 
family received official news that tho 
officer had been killed at the front 
at a time corresponding almost to a 
minute with the hour when the 
father had said his son came to see 

Hence not only this family, but 
also many scores of people who know 
the story, have been led to a strong 
belief in something In which they 
did not previously place much cre- 
dence. » 

I was speaking not long ago to a 
well-known story-writer, who told 
me that — though h* had never hith- 
erto believed in the existence at 
spirits or ghost-raising- — he was now 
half-way to belief. 

He had been to a seance at Pres- 
ton, in Lancashire, quite unexpected- 
ly, and was unknown to anybody 
there except to the friend who had 
persuaded him to attend 
was a sdehtic, and whan asked who 
he would like to see he replied, with 
an incredulous smile, "My mother." 
He told me that his mother's spir- 
it appeared and spoke to him, men- 
tioning something which no one hut 
themselves knew. 

He was so upset that he has never 
been to anything of the kind since. 
But - he now firmly believes In the 

A Cornish nelghbod of mine tells 
me that around his old home "down 
west" all the folk have a strong, be- 
lief In "the calling of the sea" when 
something serious Is about to happen. 
He states that In March last year 
there was a big ground-swell of the 
sea on the Cornish coast, which 
made a terrible "call." and that the 
Cornish people far and near felt sure 
that some disaster was occurring to 
those they loved. 

Within the next day or so came 
news of a slaughter and retreat at 
St. Quentln, In the part of the line 
where there was a large number of 
Cornish troops. 

Naturally, since sueh curious con- 
firmation of what all had been ex- 
pecting came so quickly* It has made 
the superstition spread still more In 
the county of Cornwall . 

A cousin of mine In %e»eds always 
believes that angelic music can come 
to welcome the dying. He says he. 
knows this is so. because, when his 
own father was dying, he (the son), 
lying awake in the middle of the 
night In another room, was suddenly 
startled to hear most beautiful music, 
aa If from afar. He went at once to, 
the alck-room. where his father, with 
shining eyes, wHIspered to him, 
"Willie, the angels have Just- been 
here, and thy played such sweet 
music." Within an hour or so the 
father died. 

All these stories are true. 
And they explain why the belief in 
the occult is spreading so rapidly to- 

I have Recently returned from a so- 
journ of many years In Harbin. — X 
was there during the Russian Revolu- 
tion and throughout the Bolshevist re- 
gime which followed it, and therefore 
speak with first-hand knowledge of 
Bolshevism. I may add that I speak 
the Russian language fluently, and 
was at one time a student at a well- 
known Russian university. 

The actual result of Bolshevism has 
been the ruin of Russia, but the aim 
of Bo'-hevism Is not the desolation of 
Russia alone, but that of the whole 
world and the end of a civilization. 
I have a very high opinion of the com- 
mon sense and intelligence of the Bri- 
tish workman, but clearly he has not 
been, ancFls not being, shown the re- 
verse of the picture presented by the 
Bolshevist* In our midst. Has it been 
explained to him, for instance, that 
if anarchy rules in Great Britain, New 
Zealand and Australia, who gallantly 
fought for us, must go under, being 
swamped by millions upon millions of 
Asiatic races? The Empire must 
stand together at all costs— that must 
be our slogan. 

Again, were British working men, 
for instance, ever told of the Blago- 
veschensk massacres near Harbin and 
the Bolshevist administration of that 
town? The Blagoveschensk Red Ouard 
was composed of 70 per cent, of con- 
victs, whilst the Soviet was made up 
as follows: — 

(I) The President of the Executive 
Committee of Workmen's and Holdlers 
Delegates. Monkhine, counterfeiter. 

(8) His assistant, Shatkovskl, ex- 
hard-labor convict. 

(3) The Commissioner of Prisons, 
Emlellanoff, did a term of hard labor. 

(4) His assistant, Hahlleff, was 
^7°_ ^* I tried ,or robbery. 

(5) The President of the Commis- 
sion for Alimentation, Slujkin, was 
tried for embezzlement of funds. 

(8) The Commissioner of Educa- 
tion, Korevin, did a term of hard la- 
bor for a criminal offence. 

(7) The Commissioner of Treasury, 
Tyllk, did a term of hard labor for 
robbery during the agrarian disorder 
In the Baltic provinces in 1906. 

(8) The Commissioner of Militia, 
Mltln, dl<] a term of hard labor for a 
criminal offence. 

(9) His assistant, Filipoff. ditto. 

(10) The Commissioner of Finance, 
Kusnetsoff, did a term of hard labor. 

(II) The Commissioner of Roads 
Department, Polkin, did a term of 
hard labor for robbery. 

(12) The Commissioner of Public 
Health, Vshivlkln, Illiterate peasant. 

What can be added to that? Are 
any additions required? Does not the 
above list explain more eloquently 
than a most complete report what a 
cheerless horror Is reigning In Rus- 
sia, and what the Bolshevist power Is 
In reality?

M. Clemeceau. speaking In the 
Renate on the Peace Treaty, warned 
Franca against a low birth-rate. 

"If France gives up large families, 
you may put into your treaties the 
finest articles you like," he said 
"but you will take In vain all Ger- 
many's cannon. France will be lost." 
- "I attribute most of our misfor- 
tunes." he said later, "to the fact 
that France had no governing class." 

Other epigrams were: "I do not 
know whether the war Is an Inter- 
lude In peace or peace an Interlude 
to war." 

"The future of the German Em- 
pire Is not on the water, aa It used 
to be, bat under the water."

Ontario's Political Situation 

By Sit John WUItaoa Jn The Montreal Sl»r. 

There wu no general expectation 
that the Hunt Government In On- 
tario would sustain such a .decisive 
defeat. As tho day of polling ap- 
proach** rsports cams In that many 
Conservative candidates were la 
danger. Bat It was commonly be- 
llaved that the Government would 
carry at least as many constituencies 
as the Liberal, Farmer and Labor 
parties combined. 

.It was found, however, that the 
unrest la the country was greater 
than bad been understood. Mawy 
Conservative opponents of prohibi- 
tion wars determined to "punish 
Hearst" for imposing the dry regime 
upon the province. This was peculiarly 
true in Toronto, whore many old 
Conservative workers worn active in 
support of Liberal candidates. The 
liquor interest was also, and naturally 
enough, hostile and active. As a re- 
sult. Liberal. Farmer and Labor can- 
didates carried Conservative strong- 
holds by majorities running inta 
thousand*. In the country many 
farmers wore sullen over conscrip- 
tion, not because of the fact of con- 
scription, but because they had been 
urged to Increase production and as- 
sured in tho last Federal election that 
their sons would not be taken and the* 
supply of farm labor further depleted. 
But they held that definite pledges 
were sot lightly aside, and they took 
tho first opportunity to punish a Gov- 
ernment which, although it was not 
responsible for FederaK pledges of 
their fulfillment, was In general sym- 
pathy with tho Unionists at Ottawa. 

Bat tho ehlef explanation of the 
revolution in Ontario lies In the acute 
class feeling which has developed 
among workers and farmers. Both 
elements have been under-represented 
In the Legislature aad In the House 
of Commons? Thsy determined to 
unite for political action, aad they 
got more than they expected. 

There was. too, in many people, a 
disposition to support Labor candi- 
dates because of the resolute stand 
of Its official leaders against One Big 
Unionism, because of the general atti- 
tude of Labor during the war. and 
because of the moderation and dis- 
cretion displayed at the Industrial 
Conference at Ottawa and the Conven- 
tion of the Trades and Labor Congress 
at Hamilton. It la significant that 
employers and Labor leaders at Wash- 
ington separated In anger, or at least 
Made no advance towards a better 
Understanding. It is significant also 
that in Canada Industrial peace has 
hecn substantially restored, while the 
United States seems to be upon the 
threshold of yet more general and 
tnore destructive Industrial conflict. 
For this Canadian leaders of Labor 
as well as Canadian employers have 
the gratitude of the community, and 

Kobably this gratitude was expressed

There is no reason that evil should 
come out of the situation which has 
developed In Ontario. In farmers 
there is a natural strain of conserva- 
tism. They, dislike public waste and 
extravagance. And Just now thrift 
and economy in public as In private 
affairs sre vitally needed. Labor 
too, In Ontario is under responsible 
leadership, and is not likely to sanc- 
tion projects of confiscation or plun- 
der, Moreover, the leaders of the 
farmers aad the leaders of Labor 
alike may discover that there are 
limitations to the functions of Gov- 
ernment and conditions arising from 
the war which cannot be ov er co m e

ercise of power In Ontario by a 
Farmer-Labor Government may

works at noon yesterday and were ac- 
corded a royal welcome by the em-

have accompanied the party, was, un- 
fortunately, unable to come, which 
was muoh regretted by all present. 

Mr. White, a member of the Sidney 
Victory Loan Executive Committee, 
was la the city yesterday and waxed 
quite enthusiastic over the excellent 
showing that the little town of Sidney 
has made aad Is making in the cam- 
paign. He stated that Sidney would 
be entitled to two crests on her honor 
flag by tonight, which would repre- 
sent an Investment of $70,000, and 
stated that they would win their 
fourth crest by Saturday evening. 
"This Is a most gratifying showing." 
said Brlg.-General Clark, "and Sidney 
deserves much praise and commenda- 
tion for her patriotic efforts." 

MT. White related a true incident 
of a very interesting nature. Follow- 
ing the meeting on Tuesday night, a 
small hey, who was present, walked 
Into his office on Wednesday and stat- 
ed that he wanted to buy a bond.

Bank of England's Action indi- 
cates Higher Credits Over 
Werld— Rates in New York 
Fluctuate Violently 

NBW YORK, toorVr- t. — The stock 
market was sxtrsmsly. sjiajsttloil and 
reactionary today, the trend of prices 
being- Influenced to a treat* r degree 
than at any previous period of the 
year by the monetary situation. Cu- 
mulative signs of higher credits, not 
only In this market, but all over the 
world, were furnished by the Bank 
of England. That Institution ad- 
vanced Its rats Of discount from. 5 
to « per cent, the lower rate having 
been effective shW April. 1917. The 
local market gall snsn«> opened at 
12 per cent, a Quotation only reached 
ones before this year, rising to 20 
Pfr bant, then breaking to 5 per cent, 
from which pries another advance to 
It per cent was reported. After the 
close of the markst • per cent was 
fined as the low quotation, the high 
being 12 par cent. 

It Is understood that the present 
warning of the Federal Reserve Bank 
has caused a pronounced curtailment 
of credits for speculative purposes. In 
stuck msrket circles,, however, the 
opinion prevails today that the ex- 
traordinary vagaries of the money 
market had! exceeded reasonable 

* Steels, equipments, motors and oils 
featured the early markst* and de- 
clines of 1 to 16 points were marked 
up. ' Shippings sad the usual peace 
fndustrlets, notably leather, textile, 
paper and sugar shares, accompanied 
the movement losing 3 to 5 points. 

Contrary to the usual course, rails 
were strong throughout, and served 
te help, with short coverings, to bring 
about the rally in steels' and motors 
at the- close. 

Bales amounted to t, 800.009 shares. 

Italian exchange reached a hew 
point of discount, but francs . im- 
proved, presumably on the new 
French municipal offering? while 
sterling; was slightly irregular. 

Domestic and foreign bonds showed 
little change. Total sales, par value.

In the present practice of medi-

There 1b. little doubt la the minds 
of those who stake the study of 
children their special Interest that 
Of late there has been a great In- 
crease In that class of case which 
may be justly labelled "nervous." 
Reasons for this increase are not fee 
to seek; tsj so many Instances chil- 
dren have led a nomad life, their 
fathers have been serving, and their 
mothers also often enough have 
■pent much time doing war work, 
so that the children have been left 
to the care of nurses, grandparents, 
and others, the result being that the 
peaceful lnfl**Qce and routine of 
home life have often never existed 
for them. 

There have been leaves and holi- 
days with the parents, often enough 
days of excitement and much spoil- 
ing for the child. Gradually these 
children have drifted into definite 
manifestations of an ill-balanced 
nervous system, loss of appetite, 
great restlessness, uncontrollable 
passions, twitching*, and habit- 
spasms of all kinds. These external 
signs are now becoming a source of 
great worry and anxiety to parents 
returned from the w ars and .lettling 
down again to famltygstss. 

In so many esses parents quite un- 
consciously, in their efforts to check 
what they rightly consider to be a 
serious condition, do harm rather 
than •good, for their efforts are dl- 
• rected chiefly to correction and re- 
proof, and by so doing they coifcen- 
trate the ehild's attention on himself 
and his peculiarities. 

14 '"Jatrr aim of physicians to be- 
come acquainted with the environ- 
ment of these nervous children, and 
to try in their treatment or such 
ossee to correcL the attitude of the 
parents and nurses rather than to re- 
sort to medicines, as was once the 

Modern medicine tends more and 
more to forego the old-fashioned 
drugging and to focus more on cures 
on physical lines. 

The early treatment of nervous 
children la of the .utmost Import- 
anoe; for if neglected, the conditions 
rapidly grow worse and the children 
grow up to be the sensitive, neuras- 
thenic, hypochondriacal men and 
women with whom everyone Is so 
familiar. , 

Nervous manifestations ana aa 
much disturbances as measl4w*and 
scarlet fever, and need equal careoan 
their treatment. 

The first consideration in dealing 
with these children la to prevent 
them from realising that people, es- | 
peclally their, parents, are particular 
ly interested in or worried about f 
their habits, passions, or whatever it 
may be. Subconsciously the child- 
mind comes to know it is attracting 
attention, and .to enjoy the fact; it 
likes being the centre of the picture,' 
to hear remarks aa to its behaviour 
and how worried people are; and it 
soon realises it is an interesting per- 

The course which should be adopt- 
ed is for the .whole household in 
which the child IS placed to cease to 
.comment est the condition and habits 
of the child In Ha presence, until; aa 
the child improves by generally 
building up Its complex nervous sys-

"Tobacco smoking by women is the 
great danger," says Mr. R. P. Mon» 
crleff. a Fellow of the Statistical So- 
ciety, in "the National Tobacco Bill 
for 1917 and ltlt," prepared for 
the Antl-Tobaoco and Anti-Narootte 
League of Great Britain. 

"If the women of the nation bo- 
come habitual smokers, as they rap- 
idly are doing, what .effect will It 
have on the future generation?" 

that Britain apent £1S8. 75.1, 100 In 
1918 on tobacco and smoking acces- 
sories, an increase, mainly . due to 
the heavier tax. ef ttt.ato^et over 
the cost In itl7. This sum la about 
£9 per family of five, sufficient to 
pay the rent of a cottage In the 

Apart from Army and Navy con- 
sumption, ar. Moncrleff says Britain 
smoked over Wt million pounds of 
cigarettes, or 1,000 cigarettes for 
every man, woman and child in the 
country. Only 20 per csnt. of the 
tobacco was smoked in pipes, and 
77 per cent, in cigarettes and $ per 
cent in cigars. Army and Navy con- 
sumption was 46.128.900 lb., V ilued 
duty free at £11,584.630. 

The "Tobacco Bill" shows that in 
home and foreign manufactures Bri- 
tain consumed: 

4,190.057 lbs. of cigars, 2l.tlt,$9t 
lbs. pipe tobacco and "tarff, 90,806,-

to Practice Economy In Clothes 

There are still a few englishmen 
who are among the best dressed men 
in the world. But the vast major- 
ity ate wearing their Sht clothes, gar- 
ments which before they would have 
handed over to their servitors or giv- 
en to a charitable society. 

Nowadays frayed trouser legs dad 
shiny coat elbows are not signs' ef 
penurlonsness; they are proofs of 
economy. For suits ef elsthes that 
sold for $20 or $38 In the piping 
times of peace, now cost from $tfl to 
$90. Indeed, the clothes of five 
years ago cannot be duplicated at 
any price, far the materials ef to- 
day are shoddy; there Is precious lit- 
tle wool In them. 

Many a shit that looks new be. 
cause it was made of good stuff it 
an old salt turned inside out. And ts 
have that done eosta lake the dene*. 
The attle tailors whose, work earn- 
•lets chiefly in making repairs and 
alterations are making their fortunes. 

It Is estimated by Mr. Moncrieft. The Government's Antl-Profltsefftug 

Act does not reach the tilors, It 
seems. Take this melancholy In- 

A gentleman living ha Holbarn 
complained to one ef the 16,000 tri- 
bunals that have been established 
throughout the country that his tail- 
or demanded teh shillings and six- 
pence ($2.87) for pressing a suit, 
whereas the pre-war charge was 

Srst shillings and sixpence (8Tc). 
ie ijsfborn man, with mneh vehe- 
mence, vowed that to charge $1.47 
for pressing a. suit was a little worse 
than highway robbery and only a de- 
*gree less criminal than piracy. 

The learned pundits of the tri- 
bunal informed Che choleric Hot- 
born man that the Act refers only 
to "charges ef services In common 
IMS'' sag that pressing a suit of 
clothes is so unessential and un- 
usual that the taller may charge What 
he pleases. So It remained for him 
from Holborn either te nay $2.87 or
